Barron Games joined national representatives from AAMA and AMOA on a recent advocacy trip to Washington, D.C. The company’s Anna Bacorn currently serves on AAMA’s Board of Directors and said she was thrilled to participate in the joint trip late in February.
Along with friends from the two associations, Bacorn worked alongside the associations’ lobbyists at Dentons. The group met on Capitol Hill with legislators from Congress, the U.S. House and U.S. Senate Banking Committees, as well as the U.S. House Small Business Committee.
Bacorn shared her concerns about potential changes to import/export taxes, prospective policies and other small business banking issues. She even met her Congressional District representative, Brian Higgins.
“All the legislators we met with were very enthusiastic and extremely interested in hearing our concerns. They really want to help convey our message to the proper departments. This trip was a great reminder that our legislative representatives are here to help serve their constituents, including all of us in the coin-op industry,” Bacorn said. “It’s a great experience that amply demonstrates how we can all make a positive difference for our businesses and the industry as a whole.”
