Government Relations Meet Ups
DRMA builds strong relationships with other community organizations for advocacy purposes. The Government Relations Committee (GRC) has become lean and mean with a primary focus on establishing relationships with legislators. The GRC is committed to building strong relationships with organizations and government officials to advocate for members’ issues and concerns. One of the GRC’s 2021 goals is to establish new relationships with legislators and organizations focused on government advocacy. We also hold Government Relations Meet Ups with local officials and give members opportunities to meet and speak with them as well. CLICK HERE to learn more about meet ups.
