TAIFA Political Involvement Committees Minuteman Program
It is said that all government is at the local level. But, how state or national government comes full circle to the local level requires grassroots influence. In 1969, Bart Hodges, CLU, of Austin, then president of TALU (now TAIFA), recognized the potential of grassroots involvement and laid out a blueprint for members of TALU to contact representatives and senators about life and health issues and to serve as a sounding board in the district on other legislative matters.
The plan was to match a TALU member with every member of the legislature. In most cases the TALU member may be a close friend, a neighbor, attends the same church, belongs to the same clubs, contributed and worked in the campaign, or is the legislators insurance agent. The assigned TALU member, when activated by the TALU officials, would have the responsibility to contact their representative or senator about specific legislative issues. To symbolize alertness and necessity for immediate action, the Minuteman title was chosen.
