IFDA Washington Insight Conference

The IFDA Washington Insight Conference (IWIC) is an important opportunity to get insight on policy that will impact your business and to be a powerful advocate for your business. By coming to Washington as a constituent, you can educate policymakers about the vital role of the foodservice distribution industry to the economy and to the communities in which you operate. The program includes two interactive “insight” sessions with guest speakers, Capitol Hill meetings with lawmakers, the Thomas Jefferson Awards reception, and peer-to-peer networking.
