The next meeting of the GMA State Affairs Committee will be held November 9-10 at the Westin La Cantera, San Antonio, Texas. Our annual Fall Strategic Planning Meeting will be held in conjunction with the Food Industry Association Executives (FIAE) Conference. In a continued effort to hold down travel costs for GMA and its members, the GMA State Affairs Committee will meet following the FIAE Conference in the same location, the Westin La Cantera. GMA members are greatly encouraged to attend both the SAC meeting and the FIAE Conference; however, you must register for the FIAE Conference seperately and directly through them. For GMA members who have not previously participated in the FIAE Conference, this is an invaluable opportunity for GMA and its members to network with state grocery and retail association executives from around the country in one very nice convenient location. The GMA registration form and the FIAE Conference brochure/registration are attached. GMA and FIAE participants should make their reservations at the Westin La Cantera under the FIAE room block.
