July 3, 2019

CHICAGO – July 2, 2019 – June was filled with state council meetings, involving more than 300 members, which took place from Rocky Gap, Maryland to Naperville, Illinois.

“The combination of structured issue updates and informal, fun outings are a value-add for all participants and serve as a great summary in advance of NAMA’s Fly-In & Advocacy Summit. If you haven’t registered, there’s still time to do so: https://www.namanow.org/voice/dc-fly-in-advocacy-summit/.”
