WASHINGTON The leading biweekly newsletter on associations and non-profits recognized the National Association of Chain Drug Stores as a top lobbying association, the NACDS announced Thursday.
A front-page article in the March 28 issue of CEO Update, explores how the expertise, networking and reputation of Washington’s most effective lobbyists play key roles in communicating an organization’s messages to members of Congress and across the federal government.
“CEO Update has turned to top trade group leaders and lobbying groups for their recommendations of the most effective lobbyists in Washington,” the publication stated. The article prominently featured Carol Kelly, NACDS senior vice president of government affairs and public policy.
“A top objective of NACDS over the past year has been to develop itself as one of the top lobbying trade associations in our nation’s capital,” said NACDS president and chief executive officer Steve Anderson. “Recognition of the efforts of our government affairs and public policy team by a respected and well-read publication such as CEO Update, is a testament to the leadership of NACDS, our membership, Carol Kelly and her team to ensure that the issues facing chain drug stores are heard by policy makers and elected officials.”
