NWYC – Why Work For Us?


undefined

"We the People of the United States of America, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."

The Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America

 

Our Founding Fathers were in many ways ordinary men. But their goals were not and history would prove that their vision of creating a new government – one that was of the people, by the people and for the people – was extraordinary.

When 55 delegates gathered at the Pennsylvania State House on that cold spring morning in 1787, they brought their hopes and their dreams with them. And what they created was the Constitution of the United States of America, a document unlike any other the world had ever seen.

These men literally and symbolically built separation of power into the Constitution by describing each branch of our new government in its own, separate article. This was purely an American idea – and one that thrust the people to the forefront. In fact, the very first words of the Constitution, “We the People of the United States…” is a phrase the Founding Fathers chose very carefully. They sincerely believed that the will of the people should determine the policies and direction of our government. Because of the inspired vision of our founders, we are now, as we were over 200 years ago, a central part of this government. 

We the People are the voice of America.

Presidents, members of Congress and governors were no strangers to David Adamson even before he founded National Write Your Congressman in 1958. As a successful promoter of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce for 23 years, he was often in the company of leaders. A vigorous, intelligent man, his caring nature prompted friendships and trust. He was always listening and learning. Most importantly, he learned that our elected officials want to hear from their constituents, but their constituents, particularly the business people, were often too busy, uninformed or confused about how to appropriately express their views. undefined

So, in true David Adamson style, he decided to do something about it. That’s when his idea for National Write Your Congressman was born. Our founder saw the need for an establishment that would provide citizens with non-partisan, unbiased information and make it easy for them to communicate with their lawmakers. His goal proved to be a clear and worthy one. Three generations later, this family-owned business operates in all 50 states and remains true to David Adamson’s vision. 

Though he has passed on, National Write Your Congressman continues to receive wide-spread respect and applause in Washington, D.C. and is the leading source of constituent mail received by Congress. Like the founders of our country, David Adamson had a vision that stood alone. He acted on it and reached out to other responsible Americans to help them light the way, to influence Congress, to let our voices be heard.

Now that you have stepped outside the massive crowd of silent citizens and taken a stand for your principles and your beliefs, you are working for a better government. You are proving that ordinary citizens can influence their lawmakers by communicating directly with their legislators, just as our Founding Fathers intended.

Passion and loyalty best describe the culture of NWYC. Those qualities infuse every aspect of our business that began 54 years ago. 

It started with David Adamson, the company’s founder, because he envisioned a better way for elected officials and constituents to communicate. Passion enabled NWYC to spread across 50 states and three generations of family have maintained loyalty to his original vision. 

What began with David Adamson continues today. Passion is a key ingredient for our team members who pass on their enthusiasm to members. In return, well-informed members renew year after year and team members enjoy satisfaction and longevity with NWYC. 

Our passion and loyalty make a difference in our country. And so can you!

Washington Needs Us!

You are the conduit between the constituents and members of Congress. You make it possible for everyday people to be heard.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NWYC (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    It took while to get through all the interviews. They are serious about finding a good person that can do the work. I had a phone interview, and two in person interviews. The questions were a lot about my previous jobs.
