CHICAGO, US – NAMA’s government affairs team announced today they recently became more closely involved with the U.S. Chamber. NAMA is now a member of the Government Operations, Oversight & Consumer Affairs Committee and the Council on Small Business of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Through the Chamber’s policy committees, NAMA will have more input in the Chamber’s position on issues.
“I am excited to represent NAMA and the Industry on these two important U.S. Chamber of Commerce Committees.
This expanded role will allow NAMA to be at the table for higher-level policy discussions that can impact national legislative and regulatory policies,” said Eric Dell, NAMA’s Senior Vice President of Government Affairs.
The U.S. Chamber’s Government, Operations, Oversight & Consumer Affairs Committee has broad oversight responsibility for the federal government’s regulatory and information collection processes, as well as the procedural operation of government agencies and consumer affairs.
The committee is also responsible for developing and carrying out policy on regulatory process reform, regulatory review, and other proposals directed at taming the growth and reducing the burden of federal regulations (including regulatory flexibility, paperwork reduction, regulatory accountability and cost/benefit legislation).
Also, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Council on Small Business consists of some of the most well-known and passionate small business advocates across the nation.
Members of the Council routinely help shape and advance the Chamber’s message and strong pro-business agenda through dedicated commitment and involvement in the political process.
Whether before Congress, the administration, regulatory agencies, in the courts, or in the court of public opinion, council members do make a difference.
Founded in 1936, NAMA is the association representing the $42 billion U.S. vending and refreshment services industry. With more than 1800 member companies – including the many of the world’s most recognized brands – NAMA provides advocacy, research and education to its membership.
