“Advocacy is the cornerstone of the services NAMA provides to member companies. More state lobby days means that we’re serving the interests of more NAMA member companies,” said Wes Fisher, Regional Legislative Manager.
“We encourage all members to participate in this process. Convenience Services Lobby Days are an ideal opportunity to build relationships with elected officials at the state level, and that’s an important foundation for NAMA’s work at the federal level – and that benefits the entire industry. This year, members will present Economic Impact data to state officials, demonstrating important metrics in their states – including overall revenue, jobs, wages and taxes,” said Sandy Larson, Senior Director & Counsel, Government Affairs.
