Nashashibi with PMA’s lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., The Franklin Partnership, will provide an update on the latest developments on government activities and strategies to use when facing uncertainty surrounding trade and tariffs, supply line stability, expired tax provisions and new regulatory activity.
