NAMA board members and other industry leaders will meet with members of Congress representing districts where they live and work. Discussions with lawmakers will focus on health and nutrition, electronic payments, coin and currency design, and the effects of federal regulatory expansion.

Tentative meetings include discussions related to healthy choices in vending and micromarkets with the Food and Drug Administration and Department of Agriculture, and office coffee service-focused talks with the Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy.
