O ADVOCACY On May 9, 2018, Fragrance Creators Association hosted its Federal Lobby Day. Building off of the success of last year and the launching of the Congressional Fragrance Caucus, our 8th Annual Lobby Day was our most significant federal event to-date. Our members—scientists, perfumers, researchers, farmers, artists, inventors, scientists, entrepreneurs, and the many others who make up the fragrance community—are better able to excel when our policymakers understand the needs of the fragrance industry. This event enabled our members to amplify their voices through direct access to Members of Congress and staff. Fragrance Creators strengthened existing relationships, made new points of contact, and expanded the industry’s influence. This year, we focused on maintaining the number of overall meetings while enhancing the number of quality meetings. After another record-breaking year, Fragrance Creators is confident that we have achieved wide-spread recognition for our efforts and that our relationships will aid us in future advocacy opportunities. 22 | FRAGRANCENOTES.ORG | Issue 2, 2018
