DMA Politically Direct (Spring 2008): Join DMA's 2008 'Grasstops' Program
May 16, 2008 — Day in and day out, the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) is working with elected officials on the Federal, state, and local levels of government. Our job is to keep all marketing channels open and affordable.
DMA needs your power and influence in Washington, DC, at your state capital, and before your city council. Get engaged in the political process and take control of your bottom line and how you operate your business.
How can you do this? Become a member of DMA’s “grasstops” network.
