CHICAGO – The National Automatic Merchandising Association's government affairs division has created a new member advocacy initiative. DC Advocacy Days is designed to increase NAMA's footprint on Capitol Hill, creating opportunities for members and the industry to become more involved in grassroots efforts. Ten days are planned for during 2014.

"We are excited to announce this new opportunity to increase direct industry and member involvement in federal advocacy," said Eric Dell, NAMA's senior vice-president of government affairs. "We encourage every NAMA member to contact the government affairs division as a first step to participate in DC Advocacy Days with Members of Congress and their staff."

The first DC Advocacy Day took place on Feb. 5 and included visits with five members of Congress. Participants included NAMA members Randy Smith of LightSpeed Automation and Mickal McMath of Moore Haus Coffee.

Upcoming DC Advocacy Days are scheduled for Mar. 13, Apr. 29, May 20, Jun. 24, Jul. 29, Sept. 9, Nov. 18 and Dec.10.
