OUR MISSION: Northern Indiana Advocates promote an environment in which individuals, businesses, and communities advocate for their share of resources, appointments and local control from state government.
Northern Indiana Advocates (NIA) is a bi-partisan regional government affairs and advocacy effort that draws on the strengths and vitality of existing organizations to amplify a sustained advocacy effort on behalf of our region. We seek to add a layer of collaborative, coordinated, and complementary advocacy to issues of regional importance. Working with public and private partners, our goal is to help our state legislators bring a bigger piece of the pie home to Northern Indiana. The lack of an initiative such as this has prevented our region from obtaining its share of resources, appointments and local control from state government.
