ACMA has made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person Forum for 2020 altogether. Instead, we will hold a virtual event culminating in a virtual fly-in with lawmakers in September. Following an opening election outlook session on September 2nd, the Zoom-based event will run for two 45-minute sessions, first starting at 1:00 pm (EDT), then following a short break, the second one at 2:00 pm each Wednesday of the month – September 9th, 16th, and 23rd – for a total of seven separate sessions. Then the fly-in will take place all day on September 30th on a rotating schedule to be announced.
What To Expect…
You can expect us to focus on the many moving policy issues that have direct bearing on catalog/online/DM interests: among them, postal affairs, sales tax developments, privacy law, trade and tariffs, and extra-jurisdictional (foreign) regulation. A full agenda and registration details will be made available shortly. In the meantime, we wanted to ask you to reserve these times on your schedule.
Both member and non-member companies are invited to attend. Our generous sponsors have made this event possible in order to ensure that all of our attendees can be brought up to speed on the important work of the ACMA, so there will be no registration fee, although tax deductible (to 80%) donations are gratefully accepted.
Special Sponsorships Available
A small number of well-priced supplier sponsorships will be offered. Please contact Paul Miller at email@example.com or 914-669-8391 for more information.
We hope you will join us for our “Virtual Forum” this September and participate in the virtual fly-in where you will be asking your elected officials to join us in lawmaking that is favorable to our industry and jobs. Assuming the situation permits in 2021, our 14th Annual National Forum will return as an in-person event back in Washington.
More details coming soon and stay safe!
