BALTIMORE -- Scott Meskin, president of Black Tie Services, hosted Maryland State Delegate Antonio Hayes (D-Baltimore), who visited his company's office here on Jan. 6. Hayes met with the Black Tie staff and Lisa Harris Jones, a lobbyist for Maryland and Virginia's vending associations.

"It was an honor to have Delegate Hayes visit Black Tie and see our operation firsthand," said Meskin, who also sits on the board of the National Automatic Merchandising Association, which has been initiating elected officials' visits to vending operations. "During our time together, we discussed our business and challenges the vending industry faces today. We also shared information regarding local, state and federal regulations related to nutrition and health and wellness."

Meskin said a main goal of the visit was to provide an overview of NAMA's Fit Pick program and the association's Nutrition Advisory Council.
