Advocacy in action: NAMA is the universally recognized and influential advocate of the convenience services industry.

State Councils

NAMA's state council program was founded in the 1960s. Each affiliated state association promotes the common business interests and general welfare of the convenience services industry in its state and works closely with NAMA.

State Councils represent important industry interests before state and local legislative bodies and government agencies to improve the industry's service to the public. By joining both your state council and NAMA you help support the full range of activities, federal, state, and local, that benefit the entire industry. To find out more about these associations and how you might benefit from membership in your state group contact the NAMA staff member listed below.
