Terence Huie has joined the government relations department of the National Grocers Association (NGA) as a manager of PAC and grassroots. In this role, Huie will manage NGA’s political action committee, Grocers PAC, and its grassroots advocacy efforts. He joined NGA on Oct. 30.
“Terence’s experience in managing PAC and grassroots accounts for companies, trade associations and nonprofits will help NGA continue to advance its advocacy efforts to ensure policies that better serve independent grocers,” said Chris Jones, NGA’s VP of government relations and counsel. “With critical issues front and center in 2020, Terence joins our team at an important time for Main Street grocers.”
Huie most recently worked as associate VP of client relations at DDC Public Affairs, where he managed PAC and grassroots accounts for several Fortune 500 companies, trade associations and nonprofits. He received his undergraduate degree in government and international politics from George Mason University in 2015.
NGA also has retained the services of Olsson Frank Weeda Terman Matz PC (OFW), a Washington, D.C.-based law firm that provides legal and regulatory representation on food and agriculture law and policy. OFW will be assisting NGA and its members with food safety and food labeling standards.
“With regulatory uncertainty on issues impacting independent grocers, such as CBD or food labeling, we are pleased to attain the legal services of OFW to provide assistance and resources to our members,” said Greg Ferrara, NGA president and CEO.
OFW Law provides legal and regulatory representation to companies, individuals, and trade associations in the agriculture, food, medical device, drug and health care industries.
