Public Policy is focus of Feb Club Insider

Norm Cates wanted to explain how important Advocacy is for the industry, as well as all that IHRSA does to grow, promote and protect the industry, so IHRSA worked with Norm and Justin Cates on an IHRSA Public Policy interview. The results of that interview appear as the cover article for the February issue of Club Insider News.

The article covers the early beginnings of IHRSA Government Relations, IHRSA’s Win-Loss record against harmful legislation over the past 5 years (83 – 3), how the IHRSA team works to both support pro-industry legislation and defeat hazardous legislation, misconceptions about advocacy, comments about IHRSA's efforts and successes from Industry Leadership Council members and much more.
