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.

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