Lynn Bergeson regularly provides the Regulatory Affairs Update presentation at TRFA Annual Meetings, receiving positive feedback from attendees, year after year. We are delighted to have her firm's expertise available to TRFA members between Annual Meetings. If members have regulatory questions, Bergeson & Campbell probably has the information easily available and will share that with TRFA members. If the issue is something that will require additional research or is not easily available, Bergeson & Campbell will let TRFA members know if a cost may be involved.
