CHICAGO – NAMA’s Government Affairs division announces the creation of a new member grassroots advocacy initiative: DC Advocacy Days.

DC Advocacy Days is designed to increase NAMA’s footprint on Capitol Hill, creating new opportunities for members and the industry to become more involved in grassroots efforts. The new program features ten days on Capitol Hill during 2014.

“We are excited to announce this new opportunity to increase direct industry and member involvement in federal advocacy,” said Eric Dell, NAMA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs. “We encourage every NAMA member to contact the Government Affairs Division as a first step to participate in DC Advocacy Days with Members of Congress and their staff.”

The first DC Advocacy Day took place on February 5th and included visits with five Members of Congress. Participants included NAMA members Randy Smith of LightSpeed Automations and Mickal McMath of Moore Haus Coffee.

Upcoming DC Advocacy Days are scheduled for March 13, April 29, May 20, June 24, July 29, September 9, November 18 and December 10.
