GMA Fall Lobby Day

October 28, 2019 - October 29

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.
