Gianiny is a nationally recognized expert in the field of public opinion research with nearly two decades of experience honed at the highest levels of corporate America and Republican political campaigns. During her keynote, Gianiny will explore the 2016 United States presidential election and how it might impact GCCA member companies and small businesses around the world.

“A number of GCCA members are family-owned and operated cold storage companies that may be severely impacted by the outcome of the 2016 election,” Corey Rosenbusch, President and CEO of GCCA said. “It will be interesting to hear Brenda’s thoughts on the presidential race and how the outcome could affect hundreds of small business owners in the U.S.”

This year’s meeting will put a focus on the significant regulations impacting the world’s food and cold chain through three days of activities. The AOC Symposium includes education sessions providing detailed content on topics such as Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and other port issues, Sanitary Transportation of Food, global food trade outlook, GMO labeling, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), refrigeration regulations, and more. This programming will provide an overall outlook on the key regulations impacting the cold chain industry originating in the United States government agencies and how they will relate to the world at large in the years to come.

The Committee meetings on the second day provide members of GCCA working committees an opportunity to work on tools and resources developed by GCCA. And on the final day, members participate in Government Agency Visits to elevate the importance of certain issues related to the global cold chain industry. Agency visits may include – Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, United States Department of Agriculture, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, and others.
