The TRSA 14th Annual Legislative Conference and Annual Awards dinner in Washington, DC, 10-11 April, provides members a chance to meet legislators in person to establish relationships and help educate our nation’s legislators on the issues that are important to the linen, uniform and facilities industry. Keynoter Bob Cusack, the national policy and politics analyst and editor-in-chief of The Hill newspaper, will share his political perspective on Capitol Hill, including his take on this year’s federal elections in the US House, Senate, and the presidency.
