For the first time in six years, we have a pro-business majority in both houses of Congress. Lawmakers need to know about the challenges your company faces to take action on your legislative and regulatory concerns.

The 2015 IFDA Washington Insight Conference is an opportunity to inform elected representatives about your business, about the people you employ, and about the important role of foodservice distribution in the US economy. Day 1 of the conference includes a full day program of speakers on how federal policy might affect your company and what is likely to happen during the final two year of the Obama administration. Day 2 of the conference includes Capitol Hill visits to meet with your lawmakers and to be an advocate for your company and foodservice distribution at large.
