ISA / NAM Summit
Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief
The International Sign Association (ISA) is joining the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) for a summit with sign manufacturers in Washington, D.C. The June 15-16 NAM Summit will reinforce the vital role that signs play in the U.S. economy and the importance of sound manufacturing policy to the sign industry.
Last year, more than 350 manufacturers from around the country gathered for the NAM Summit. NAM members visited more than 160 congressional offices to emphasize the need for policies that will spur economic growth.
This year, NAM and ISA will build on that success by holding congressional meetings with ISA members.
The NAM event begins June 15 with a briefing lunch and ends the next day. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee, and William Daley, chief of staff for President Barack Obama, are expected to address attendees.

ISA members who are planning to attend should notify David Hickey, ISA director of government relations, so that meetings with congressional representatives can be confirmed. Hickey can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
