Legislative Support: We monitor legislation that would have an adverse effect on our industry. This allows us to act before a legislator’s idea becomes law.
Security Committees: Our security committee alerts members whenever criminals appear to be targeting vending companies in their area. By sharing information and working with local law enforcement, these committees help to increase security awareness at the local level.
Publications: Membership lists, legislative bulletins, & meeting minutes help members maintain contact with fellow vendors & suppliers, while staying up-to-date on association activities, industry regulations, trends & any items of concern.
