The Hill, an influential newspaper that covers Capitol Hill, has named the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) as one of the top lobbying organizations in Washington, D.C., for the sixth consecutive year.
The Hill article states that “Washington’s corps of lobbyists and advocates will be in the thick of the post-election action and the best of them — represented here on The Hill’s annual Top Lobbyists list— will be working with gusto to shape the policy choices made on taxes, spending and the budget.”
The Hill particularly cited retired Navy Vice Adm. Norbert R. Ryan, Jr., MOAA’s President. “Ryan is leading the charge to protect military healthcare and veterans benefits from the deep budget cuts that are on tap for 2013,” The Hill stated.
“We are very proud and humbled to be recognized by The Hill,” Ryan said. “We appreciate the recognition very much for our work on behalf of the military and veterans community. It is the entire MOAA Team - our board of directors, our entire staff, led by Col Steve Strobridge and his Government Relations team, our strong chapter system, our partners and our terrific members that give us One Powerful Voice! We will need that entire team more than ever in the challenging months ahead.”
