Government Affairs

Government regulations pose constant challenges to the hearth, patio and barbecue industries. Staying in-the-know is critical to protecting our livelihood and businesses. Although regulation is crafted on the National level, it is often implemented at the local level. 

We want our members to be prepared for whatever comes their way, and we work hard to track and advocate issues in favor of our industries on a local, regional and federal level. Read an Overview of Government Affairs Through the Years.
