GMA’s recent priorities: Lobby efforts, separation study, coal ash, shale gas, new website

GMA members from 10 companies met with U.S senators, representatives, and their staffs during a full day on Capitol Hill Sept. 14.

GMA’s annual Fall Lobby Day featured member participation during three days, Sept. 13–15 in Washington, D.C. GMA members met with 22 congressional offices, seeking support and providing education on three key GMA government relations issues.

Key GMA issues

The GMA focus group on shale gas has produced a technical white paper describing the geosynthetic opportunities within the shale gas industry. It has also produced a brochure that graphically demonstrates the geosynthetic application for the industry.

That brochure and brochures describing geosynthetic materials can be found on GMA’s website.

GMA launches new website

GMA has launched a new website to better serve its members and the geosynthetics industry as a whole.

Non-members can now join GMA online and renewals for current members are easy to complete on the site. The site’s navigation and search capabilities make it an essential resource for geosynthetics industry professionals.
