“How government affects our business & our profits” Important educational & networking dinner event: March 12, 2013 at Hotel Angelino, Los Angeles

Decisions made every day in Washington, D.C. and in state legislatures have very real and tangible impacts on the bottom lines of ASTA members and on how we run our businesses. Airline ancillary fees, taxes on service fees, travel insurance licensing requirements and independent contractor regulations are just the tip of the iceberg. Influential speakers at this event will help you make sense of this and use the information to your advantage.

  • Main Speaker: C. Stewart Verdery, Jr., Founder and Partner at Monument Policy Group, LLC is a leading congressional attorney. His presentation will focus on how ASTA members can achieve public policy and political objectives in the coming years by strengthening and empowering our grassroots network.
  • Second speaker: Eben Peck Vice President, Government Affairs – ASTA (National) will talk about ASTA’s policy priorities and our ability to lobby our officials and present an overview of how these fit into the broader Washington scene. He will also address what local ASTA chapters can do to achieve their objectives for local issues. A Q&A segment will follow.
  • Susan D. Tanzmann from SoCalASTA will provide a brief update of local Californian issues that could have an immediate impact on our businesses for which we have been lobbying in Sacramento.
