Government Affairs Committee Keeps Busy
The Government Affairs Committee she co-chairs has been busy over the last few years, she said. It was “taken to a new level with the addition of a dedicated HARDI staffer, Jon Melchi,” Madonia added.
“Our goal is always to keep members informed of what's going on at the federal and state levels, both in our industry and the general business environment,” she said. “The more members know, the more they not only can affect change by making their voices heard, but also make informed business decisions.”
Attending HARDI’s events “has introduced me to a lot of really wonderful people, many of whom encounter the same issues I do back in the office,” she continued. “I have found the networking to be invaluable to my job, and I am grateful that HARDI provides the forum for great exchanges between members.”
Madonia also appreciates each meeting’s top-notch content.
“HARDI has much to offer its members, and I think that those who get involved have an inside track that really benefits our companies,” as well as providing opportunities to meet and become friends with people in this industry, she said.
