GMA Fall Lobby Day

January 9th, 2015 / By: / Category: Division News


More than 30 members of the Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) participated in GMA’s Fall Lobby Day, held Nov. 19 in Washington, D.C. GMA’s lobbying firm, Whitmer & Worrall, organized 28 meetings with Congress representatives who were instrumental in supporting the first-ever geosynthetics language in the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA), which passed into federal law last summer.

During these meetings, GMA members presented the members of Congress with a GMA Friend of the Industry award for their ongoing support of the geosynthetic materials industry and their assistance with WRRDA.

The next GMA Lobby Day event will be in the spring of 2015. For more information, visit www.gmanow.com, or contact Omari Hoover, division specialist, at oehoover@ifai.com or +1 651 225 6984.
