MAMOA will meet with state legislators during the group's annual lobbying trip and membership meeting, taking place Jan. 15 in Annapolis. MAMOA will host a reception for lawmakers, staff and families that will include an equipment showcase.
MAMOA president Larry Bershtein, Capitol Amusement Co. (Laurel, MD), and its lobbyist Kevin O'Keeffe urged trade members to attend a yet-unscheduled public hearing on the regulations and to communicate their concerns to legislators.
