Chicago – Participants in the National Automatic Merchandising Association's first Fly-in in late July met with 62 per cent of the U.S. Senate and 29 per cent of the U.S. House of Representatives on a variety of topics, including calorie disclosure and small business regulatory flexibility.

Nearly 200 Fly-in attendees participated in 186 meetings with elected officials and their staffs on Capitol Hill, building awareness on key refreshment service industry issues, NAMA said in a news release.

NAMA said the Fly-in reached a total of 35 per cent of congressional offices overall.

The Fly-In, the first and most comprehensive NAMA advocacy effort to date, drew participants from 35 states and the District of Columbia. Meeting discussions focused on three main issues: Calorie Disclosure/Health and Wellness, the Small Business Regulatory Flexibility Improvements Act and Coin and Currency.
