HPBA seeks code coordinators, advocates
November 4, 2015,
ARLINGTON, Va. - The Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association is looking for members to be local HPBA Code Coordinators and State Industry Advocates.
Many bills and regulations will be introduced in 2016 that could be harmful - or helpful - to the barbecue and hearth industries. Volunteer coordinators and advocates will receive email alerts from HPBA and have access to HPBA's legislative tracking system, which will allow you to read and distribute information relevant to the respective states. Advocates will be able to provide reports to their affiliate on potentially harmful or helpful legislation and regulations.
HPBA will be hosting a webinar on the new multi-state legislative tracking system on Nov. 12 at 2:00 p.m. EST. If you are interested in participating or in being a Code Coordinator or State Industry Advocate in the upcoming legislative session in your state, please contact Crystal Gitchell at HPBA for registration information.
