VLA gives you a legislative voice

VLA has engaged the distinguished government relations division of Downs Rachlin Martin (DRM), one of Vermont’s most well-respected law firms, to represent us in legislative sessions. DRM is well positioned to ensure Vermont lodging’s voice is heard. Grant allocations, regulatory issues, and short term rental regulation are just some of the topics that we are addressing.

DRM’s team consists of professionals who attend every relevant committee meeting so that we don’t miss a thing. If needed, we issue Action Alert emails to mobilize our association on critical matters.
