Registration is now open for the virtual MEMA 2021 Advocacy Week. Your stories and participation will demonstrate how suppliers are nimble and ready to adapt. You can make sure your voice is heard right from your desk—MEMA’s on-line event will allow suppliers to “Zoom” the Hill on February 23-25, 2021.
COVID-19 restrictions continue to make in-person meetings and conferences with legislators more difficult, but that does not mean we can set aside the important work of communicating the critical role that suppliers play in the U.S. economy and issues that impact our industry. While your MEMA team in Washington is doing just that every day, we are also providing opportunities for member company representatives to work with us from wherever you are.
This year, MEMA will offer a newly-designed virtual Advocacy Week, which will allow participants to engage with legislators via Zoom “coffee chats” and attend educational sessions, division-specific breakouts, and listen to political speakers discuss what to expect in 2021. Participants are sure to get a lot of useful information and insight out of each day’s program.
With a new administration, a change in Senate control, and a newly-seated Congress, now is a critical time to meet and engage in Washington. MEMA makes it easy and valuable.
“Due to the pandemic, we were forced to cancel our flagship legislative event last year. Since then, we have all had to learn and adapt to new ways of meeting and communicating,” said MEMA President and CEO Bill Long. “We have learned these methods are effective. We invite you to join us this year in our new format. It is more important now than ever.”
Registration is now open. Reserve your seat in one of the most important on-line sessions of the year.
