​​A Collaborative BTMA & WMNTMA Business Event
September 25,2018
Courtyard Marriott- Marlborough MA
Trump, Tariffs, and the New Washington:
Two Years After the Election that Changed It All
Presented by Omar Nashashibi of the Franklin Partnership
​​

We are thrilled to announce that Omar Nashashibi of The Franklin Partnership will be presenting Trump, Tariffs, and the New Washington. This informative presentation will provide you our members the opportunity to learn more about ever changing terrain. President Trump promised to change Washington and unlike most other politicians, he has kept that promise – our nation’s capital is a very different place. Tariffs on steel, aluminum, and other inputs have drastically changed the U.S. manufacturing landscape as the tax cuts spurred optimism and Congress finally came together to pass a career and technical education bill. Omar S. Nashashibi is a lobbyist in Washington, D.C. having represented the NTMA for more than a decade before the U.S. Congress, White House, and federal agencies. This is your chance to hear directly from a Washington insider about what is really happening and how tariffs, taxes, regulations and other developments impact your business.Members of our sister chapter, Western MA NTMA have been invited to attend providing a fabulous opportunity to get caught up with your network and perhaps make some new connections.

Schedule of Events:
4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Closing Bell Networking Hour
5 p.m. “The Cabinet Dinner Buffet”
6 p.m. Trump, Tariffs, and the New Washington Presentation
7 p.m. Closing Remarks

Register now for this fabulous business briefing meeting!
Deadline to register is September 19,2018. Cost per person is $75.00
