NAMA Fly-In breaks records
Early results from the 2nd annual National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) Fly-In indicate record-breaking participation. Initial reports show that participants met with a record 81 percent of the U.S. Senate and 30 percent of the U.S. House of Representatives, reaching a total of 39 percent of congressional offices overall.
In a significant increase following last year’s inaugural Fly-In, nearly 275 attendees participated in more than 200 meetings with elected officials and their staffs on Capitol Hill, building awareness on key convenience services industry issues and further expanding NAMA’s footprint in Washington.
The Fly-In, NAMA’s largest and most comprehensive advocacy effort to date, drew participants from 41 states and the District of Columbia. Meeting discussions focused on three main issues: nutrition and wellness, the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act, and sustainability. For more information, visit (www.vending.org)
