2012 Government Affairs Fly-In a Success!
WASHINGTON, D.C. – This year’s ERA Government Affairs Fly-In on May 7-9 was a smashing success, with the most diverse and talented line-up of speakers and panels ever. It was great to see so many ideas and conversations take shape during the dialogue between the industry and the assembled experts who influence policy in Washington, D.C. The star-studded line-up included high-level participants from the industry and self-regulatory community, as well as the FTC, FCC, Capitol Hill and more. ERA members stormed Capitol Hill to tell legislators the positive story of our industry, its self-regulatory success ERSP, and to discuss the concerns we all face collectively in an evershifting landscape of regulatory and legislative uncertainty. With more than 45 meetings on the Hill, our feedback has been that your voices were heard in the halls of power that day. We also were thrilled with the strong attendance from the membership and generous support from this year’s sponsors Guthy-Renker and Venable, LLP (Gold Level) and Manatt, Litle & Co and OrderMotion (Silver Level). It was definitely a memorable event. – Bill McClellan, ERA’s Vice President of Government Affairs
