GMA Fall Lobby Days October 24 – 25, 2017
The Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) continues to make significant strides toward increasing the industry’s exposure in Washington, D.C. Many members of Congress are now advocating for our industry, in large part, due to GMA’s lobbying efforts along with the support and involvement of GMA members. It is critical that GMA members continue to educate members of Congress about national issues affecting companies within their districts and states. GMA appreciates the hard work of our members and will continue to be a strong industry advocate.
*Note: D.C. can have very expensive hotel room rates We urge you to take advantage of GMA’s group rate found below at the Residence Inn. This rate will expire on September 22.
