The National Alliance of State Broadcasters Associations represents the leaders of the 50 state broadcast associations, the core of the NAB's grassroots program. Members of NASBA enjoy one-on-one relationships with their House and Senate members, and Congressional staff members count on NASBA's insight and opinions as legislation is being considered.

NASBA has played an integral and important part in shaping the debate on issues surrounding the 1996 Telecom Act, the Satellite Home Viewer Improvement Act and low-power FM service. Most recently, NASBA has played an important role in repelling the push for mandatory free air time, and it has also been instrumental in assisting the NAB in our bi-annual community service survey.

NASBA is governed by a 5-member Executive Board and a part-time staff.
