Military Officers Association of America Receives Top Lobbyist Honors from The Hill

Retired Navy Vice Adm. Norbert R. Ryan, Jr., President of the Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) accepted The Hill’s Top Lobbyist of 2012 award recently at a luncheon on Capitol Hill. The Hill, an influential newspaper that covers Capitol Hill, named MOAA as one of the top advocacy associations in Washington, D.C., for the sixth consecutive year.

Ryan joined Publisher and Executive Vice President of The Hill, Francine McMahon, editor-in-chief Hugo Gurdon, members of the editorial team, and fellow 2012 Top Lobbyists at the lunch.

“Allow me to extend my congratulations on the honor of being selected as one of The Hill’s Top Lobbyists of 2012,” McMahon said. “It has been our pleasure to follow your efforts and progress over the last year, and we are happy to recognize you as one of the best at what you do.”

The Hill particularly cited Ryan. “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.”

The MOAA was the only military-affiliated association so named under the Association category. But Paul Rieckhoff’s Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America was also named as a top lobbyist under the grassroots organization category.
