IFDA Washington Insight Conference

As a business leader, you need to stay informed about what Washington is contemplating.The IFDA Washington Insight Conference provides a valuable opportunity for IFDA members to learn where federal policy is headed through an agenda where you hear directly from lawmakers, regulators, and other experts. This is a chance to get insights, ask questions, interact with other IFDA member leaders, and meet with your lawmakers.

2015 IFDA Washington Insight Conference

From misguided energy policy to a wave of new food safety regulations, the federal government is far from a neutral force in the foodservice economy. The IFDA Washington Insight Conference is an invaluable opportunity to gain insights on key regulatory issues and connect with  lawmakers to tell them how their decisions affect foodservice distributors. In two days time, IFDA members get the latest updates on labor, transporation, taxes, food safety, and more.

This conference also offers IFDA members the opportunity to represent their company and the industry on Capitol Hill. Working with IFDA staff, participants are given the opportunity to schedule meetings with lawmakers from their district and given talking points and guidance on how to get the most out of the visits. This is your annual opportunity to join with other foodservice distributor executives and provide a unified voice for the industry.
