NSSGA’s Michele Stanley Named to The Hill’s Top Lobbyist List for 2020
NSSGA’s Michele Stanley has been named one of Washington’s Top Lobbyists by The Hill, a long-time publication covering Capitol Hill. According to The Hill, those recognized on the list have “wielded their clout and knowledge most effectively for their clients.”
Read what NSSGA had to say about the honor:
In a year full of challenges, Stanley rose above to deliver results for NSSGA’s members. Stanley led NSSGA’s Government and Regulatory Affairs team to ensure our industry was deemed as essential to continue operations during the early weeks of the pandemic. With advocacy changing by the day in a virtual world, Stanley led the efforts of a hardworking and passionate team to draw in members of Congress to speak directly with our members through regular Policy Briefing webinars. Those efforts built a level of engagement with our members that paid off during our annual fly-in, where 325 bipartisan hill meetings were held virtually with Congressional offices, including leadership on both sides of the aisle in both chambers. Stanley also continued her efforts as a leader and coalition builder in the aggregates industry, working with the Highway Materials Group.
“Michele is an outstanding advocate, who tirelessly works to advance the public policy priorities of our member companies,” said NSSGA President & CEO Michael Johnson. “Very simply, advocacy is job #1 at NSSGA, and Michele has made us more effective than ever in doing that work. The value our industry provides to our communities and our economy would not get the understanding it deserves with policymakers without Michele’s great work. We are extremely fortunate to have her leading our advocacy team.”
Stanley finds herself among a ‘who’s who’ of Washington heavyweights, as a leading advocate for the aggregates industry. The Hill’s Top Lobbyist List is the most anticipated recognition each year for government relations professionals.
