The Legislative Affairs Chairperson also serves as the liaison of the NAMME Board of Directors. He/she will interface with legislators/health organizations and their staffs for the purpose of providing factual information and data on issues affecting the NAMME membership. This includes collaborating with such organization to realize change in adverse legislation. The essence and outcomes of these interactions are shared in the Legislative Corner.
