Categories: General Date: Feb 15, 2016 Title: IRDA Mobilizes for the 2016 National Legislative Conference
Illinois Rental Dealers will be meeting with their congressional representatives in their stores during February, March and April as part of APRO's 2016 National Legislative Conference. Historically, rental dealers from across the country travel to Washington D.C. to meet with their elected representatives. IRDA President, Casey Pristou stated, “we are conducting our National Legislative Outreach in 2016 in our home districts. Meeting with our elected officials in district this year fits well with the presidential election year cycle and will provide a unique opportunity to highlight the positive impact Illinois rental dealers have on their local communities.” During the store meeting the representative will tour the store, meet its employees and customers and learn about the economic impact RTO has on the district. Pristou added, "this is a great event. All of our rental dealers in Illinois are involved. We fully expect to host each representative from all 18 Illinois congressional districts at an Illinois rental dealer’s retail store location as part of this effort."
