New Networking, Education and Industry Involvement
CHICAGO – June 26, 2018 – Today, NAMA announced enhanced networking opportunities and education, as participation for the Fly-In reaches 260 people.
“Our agenda for the Fly-In is jam-packed with valuable sessions preceding the meetings on Capitol Hill. For starters, taking place Tuesday, July 24 at 2 p.m. at the Fairmont, FDA’s Dr. Robin McKinnon will lead a dynamic discussion addressing your questions on Calorie Disclosure, FDA’s Nutrition Innovation Strategy, and other areas of impact to the industry. To help guide the session’s Q and A, we’re asking for the industry’s participation. Send your questions to NAMA’s Marilyn Dent at [email protected],” said Jason Eberstein, NAMA’s Legislative Affairs Director.
“Beginning at 4 p.m., WIN will co-host a reception, also at the Fairmont, featuring the Women’s Foodservice Forum, along with female leaders from throughout the industry. Together, they will address key issues facing women in the workplace today, sharing professional development and best practices,” said Eberstein.
“With more information to follow, we look forward to welcoming as many participants as possible to join their 260 convenience services colleagues in Washington, D.C. NAMA Fly-in participants will have a very positive experience and together, we can do much more work, with greater meaning and benefit for all,” he continued.
Registration for the Fly-In is free for NAMA members; family members and colleagues are invited. Note: the hotel deadline for rooms at Le Meridien is this Friday, June 29. Click here for more information: www.namaflyin.org.
