Public Policy And The IHRSA 2013 Summit For A Healthier America

Speaking at IHRSA's Summit For A Healthier America this year in Washington DC was a great experience. It was my third time attending the event along with some of the leading thinkers in the fitness industry. IHRSA and the public policy council do a great job educating the membership and informing public policy leaders on the opportunities available to curb the exploding cost of sick care and position the health club industry as a solution to this challenge. Their legislative initiatives and state level efforts at protecting and promoting the health club industry are very intense and effective.

If you have not made a contribution to the industry defense fund please do so and learn more about it here http://www.ihrsa.org/industry-defense-fund . Below is my content from the event. What do you think ? How do you feel about IHRSA's efforts at impacting legislation ? I'd love to hear from you.
