LSA, hibu at Massachusetts Municipal Association and Rhode Island League of Cities & Towns Conferences
February 4, 2014 | Contributed by: Gene Wilk
Promoting our industry among policymakers in 2014 started with two conferences in New England in January. With participation by hibü at both, we had an exhibit booth at the Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA) conference in Boston, MA. A week later, we were at the Rhode Island League of Cities & Towns’ in Warwick, RI. When we share details of YellowPagesOptOut.com, our environmental record, and how we boost local economies, we make important gains with local lawmakers whom otherwise may support bills restricting our industry. In both Massachusetts and Rhode Island – both states where our industry has faced legislative hurdles – we were pleased to be greeted warmly and feel that we made a good impact with local leaders.
