Shaul receives FMI public affairs award

Dan Shaul

Food Marketing Institute said it has presented its Donald H. MacManus Award to Missouri Representative Dan Shaul, state director of the Missouri Grocers Association.

Shaul received the honor for his extraordinary leadership in public affairs and his dedication to both industry and community relations.

Leslie G. Sarasin, FMI president and CEO, presented Shaul with the award as part of the association’s Day in Washington program on Capitol Hill. She described Shaul as a staunch supporter of FMI, citing his service on the FMI Government Relations Committee and his yearly participation in FMI’s Midwest regional meeting and state issues retreat, where his grassroots experience has helped to shape FMI’s priority and emerging issues.

“Dan serves the interests of the food retail industry at many levels, and he particularly has his finger on the pulse of his home state as an elected official to the Missouri State General Assembly,” Sarasin said.  “Since 2014, Dan has introduced – and even more impressively – helped to pass legislation that preempts localities from regulating plastic bags and legislation that seeks consistency across state employee benefits.”

Shaul has been a much-honored association executive, earning the Missouri Retailers Association Legislative Recognition Award in 2016, and the 2015 Legislative Freshman of the Year Award by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce. In 2012, National Grocers Association recognized its board-of-directors-member Shaul with its “Association Leadership Award.” The Windsor C-1 Board of education also honored Shaul for “Dedicated Leadership in Public Education and Continuing Service to the Children of the Community” in both 2012 and 2014.
