WASHINGTON -- The National Automatic Merchandising Association is finalizing plans for its Advocacy in Action 2014 public policy conference here. It's scheduled for Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.

The delegation will be led by NAMA chairman Pete Tullio, Gourmet Coffee Service/World Wide Vending (Van Nuys, CA) and president and chief executive Carla Balakgie. Participants will include the members of NAMA's board, government affairs committee and emerging leaders network, along with state council leaders from Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia. Representatives of allied industry associations and advocacy organizations also will take part.

Advocacy in Action 2014 is designed to focus on NAMA's top legislative priorities, including the new Smart Snacks in Schools regulations, calorie disclosure, metallic content of coins, and health and nutrition.

"The overall goal of the event is clear: building an understanding of key issues and enhancing relationships with congressional and agency leaders and advocacy groups," said Eric Dell, NAMA senior vice-president of government affairs. "Accomplishing this goal is part of our strategic mission to deliver value to our members"
