After the votes were tallied in the latest MIRS/EPIC-MRA Insider Survey, our own Kurt Berryman has made the top spot (yet again) as the most effective individual lobbyist. He has taken most effective lobbyist in the biannual survey in 2019, 2017, 2015, 2013 and tied for the honor back in 2011. This year, he secured 9% of the vote.
Reached for comment by MIRS, the never shy Berryman offered up “I would like to thank Zoom, sweat pants, Door Dash and, of course, my wife — because that is smart lobbying.”
In the category of which membership association is considered “most effective” at lobbying, Auto Dealers of Michigan took the #4 spot with 5% of the vote. (Topped only by the Michigan Chamber, Michigan Beer and Wine Wholesalers and the Michigan Health and Hospital Association.)
Kurt has done an excellent job leading our legislative efforts and promoting the franchised car and truck industry in Michigan. If you have a moment, please reach out and offer your congratulations.
