2018 GMA Fall Lobby Day

November 13, 2018 - November 14

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.

How to Attend
There is no registration fee for GMA members to attend Lobby Days. A fee of $1,000 is collected from non-members. Please register ASAP to ensure effective scheduling of meetings with your congressional delegation.
