For many of you, this marks the second time you received Week in Review, an e-newsletter focused on SAF’s daily efforts on Capitol Hill to educate and inform Members of Congress and federal officials about the impact of legislation and regulations on the floral industry.
This is not a new publication. Previously, we e-mailed Week In Review to members by request. Now, all SAF members automatically receive this free member benefit every Friday when Congress is in session.
We want you and all members to be aware of what we do in Washington. SAF’s Chairman of the Board Martin Meskers, AAF, of Oregon Flowers, Inc. in Aurora, Oregon, describes Week In Review this way: “It gives me a good overview of what’s going on D.C. for our business and our industry. It’s a quick easy read. It’s not political. It just tells me what’s going on. I like it that comes from our industry viewpoint.”
Another avid reader is Marvin N. Miller, Ph.D., AAF, of Ball Horticultural Company in West Chicago, and chairman of SAF’s Government Joint Council. He says: “I look forward to seeing the Week In Review in my e-mail every Friday. In just a few minutes, I get the lowdown on what’s happening in D.C. that impacts our industry. Knowing that SAF is on the scene and can relate the week’s happenings is very reassuring. Knowing that SAF will keep us in the loop is priceless.”
Skip Paal, AAF, of the Rutland Beard Floral Group in Catonsville, Maryland, is chairman of the SAF Retailers Council: “Week In Review is a great tool for me. Having a condensed update that weeds through all of the government news is invaluable. I look forward to reading it because I know it’s going to be the information that is pertinent to my business and our industry.”
We hope you look forward to our weekly reports as much as Martin, Marvin and Skip do, and please join us March 12-13 at the 38th Annual Congressional Action Days so you can experience SAF government relations in action.
Thank you for reading.
