Action Long Island (ALI), established in 1981, is a volunteer nonprofit organization that provides its members with networking and advocacy opportunities through our task forces. The task forces are composed of ALI members who address key issues to educate themselves and others, and work to resolve public concerns through many different forums.
ALI is here for you - Long Island's businesses and residents. We bring leaders from the business, professional, labor, education, government, and civic communities together with local, county, state and federal officials to help us make positive changes. We do it because we live and work here too and because we want Long Island to be a great place to live.
If you live on Long Island and drive on the parkways or turn on a light switch, ALI has affected your life. We don't believe in committees because we don't just talk about issues -- we do something about them. And that's why we have Task Forces. We're dedicated to getting results and our list of accomplishments for the past thirty years shows it.
If you do business on Long Island, chances are you have a concern or an issue that is relevant to you. At ALI, we have six Task Forces that cover a wide range of issues. You will find one that is a good fit for you. We invite you get involved. Don't see what you're looking for? Talk to us about it because we are always open to addressing the concerns of Long Island.
In an attempt to lower the cost of housing and other properties on Long Island, the primary objective of the Housing and Development Task Force is to review, and make recommendations to control and lower property taxes. We are additionally interested in finding a way to retain our young professional talent by providing them with diverse and affordable housing options.
The Energy & Environmental Task Force works to provide Long Islanders with safe, reliable and competitive forms of energy. This is accomplished through advocacy for Federal and State statutes that will provide energy tax credits for small business owners and homeowners. We also examine and support the development of cost effective independent power generating facilities.
The fabric of Long Island is made up of over 85% small businesses; companies who you’ve never heard of but on a day-to-day basis feed our famiies. The objective of the Small Business & Economic Development Task Force is to ensure that the concerns and challenges facing these companies are addressed, brought to the attention of elected officials, and resolved..
The mission of the Healthcare Task Force is to promote wellness, help ensure quality health care and contain healthcare costs for businesses and residents. Currently our 4th Annual Corporate Wellness Challenge is being launched and accepting rolling admissions to any company that would like to participate. The Healthcare Task Force facilitates dialogue between insurance companies, healthcare providers, healthcare advocates, business organizations, residents, and legislators.
The Transportation Task Force's mission is to build a sustainable future through improved and smarter transportation on Long Island and to bring light to infrastructure projects and issues that are locally pertinent. In addition, the Transportation Task Force is working hand in hand with the Energy & Environmental Task Force on developing a conference on “Traffic, Transportation, and the Environment.”
With the rising cost of living on Long Island, it is getting harder and harder for our grown children to stay here. With that end in mind, the Young Adult Alliance looks to engage young adults so that they develop the ability to play a key role in shaping Long island’s future through facilitating their participation in key issues that affect them individually and collectively.
