CEDIA to Network with Key Legislators, Highlight Member Interests at NCSL Conference


Indianapolis, Ind. – Members of the Custom Electronic Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) Government Affairs team will participate in the 2006 National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) Annual Meeting and Exhibition, scheduled for Aug. 15-18 in Nashville, Tenn. The conference will be held at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and will focus on current topics and policy issues facing business leaders and legislators in the United States.

Every summer, NCSL organizes the annual meeting for key legislators, senior legislative staff, state and federal agency personnel and government relations managers from corporations, associations and special interest groups. Approximately 20 percent of U.S. legislators attend the NCSL meeting.

Throughout the NCSL event, CEDIA Government Affairs members will have opportunities to meet with and educate authors and sponsors of priority legislation that affect CEDIA Members as well as current and future uses of technology in residential homes. Legislative leaders from throughout the United States will attend the conference.

In addition, a CEDIA-sponsored LegisBrief—a briefing paper on emerging issues that analyzes issues along with state and federal actions on the issues—will be available to legislators throughout the NCSL conference and exhibition. CEDIA’s LegisBrief is titled “Licensing of Electrical Professions.”

“CEDIA’s government affairs team is eager to take advantage of this opportunity to advance public policy efforts on behalf of our members,” said Mitchell Klein, CEDIA’s government affairs and public policy chair and owner of StayTuned in Boston, Mass. “Our team of business owners, technology innovators and other industry leaders come together every year at the NCSL conference to help our businesses promote legislation that’s good for business.
