Don’t forget – the NAMA DC Fly-In is coming up this July!
Join U-Select-It along with other business and industry leaders in Washington, D.C for two powerful days, the 24th and 25th this July, of letting your voice be heard in Congress! U-Select-It (USI) is proud to announce our participation as a sponsor of NAMA’s signature advocacy event – the 2018 DC Fly In.
New for this year, sessions have been added geared to various NAMA constituencies: Women in the Industry (WIN), Emerging Leaders Network (ELN), suppliers, and machine manufacturers. And of course, we will be spending Wednesday with policy makers on Capitol Hill talking about issues important to the industry.
Plus, NAMA recently announced that Kyle Trygstad, National Journal Hotline editor, will be the featured speaker Tuesday, July 24 at the association’s Fly-In Evening Reception.
“With his perspective, as a seasoned political media professional, Kyle will share an ‘insider’s view’ oKyf the upcoming elections. Hired out of college by NBC-TV’s Chuck Todd, Kyle will deliver remarks, followed by a dynamic Q and A session, making this another ‘don’t miss’ event for our industry,” said Jason Eberstein, Government Affairs Director of NAMA.
Fly In attendees will advocate on behalf of the industry on issues related to calorie disclosure, commercialization of rest areas on interstate highways and promoting the economic impact of the industry. Below are a few examples of how NAMA’s Government Affairs team works to protect and promote members and the convenience service industry.
