Practice before federal agencies such as the Department of Transportation (DOT), its regulatory administrations such as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), DHS's Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) requires knowledge of the numerous laws, regulations, procedures, and policies governing practice before those agencies. As with any specialized area of the law, a key element of successful and competent representation is the accumulated body of knowledge and experience concerning the field and the institutions with which one interacts. Members of IATSBA receive recurring education and training on a broad array of transportation topics and opportunities to interact with members of the transportation legal and regulatory communities. IATSBA also provides a mechanism to share ideas and thoughts with others from within government and currently in private practice. Additionally, IATSBA provides a conduit through which important changes in the law are rapidly disseminated, so that each member of our community is knowledgeable about evolving trends and specific changes when it counts most.
