The Natural Products Association (NPA) announced its annual “Fly-In on Capitol Hill” advocacy day will be held Wednesday, May 22, 2024 in Washington, D.C.
The event will allow attendees to meet directly with their members of Congress to discuss legislation and policy impacting the natural products industry. The NPA will offer a “How to Lobby” training session for new advocates on the morning of May 22.
There will also be a webinar-based presentation of “NPA Intro to Advocacy,” a national program for grassroots advocacy training, which will be available the week prior to the event, according to the NPA.
“Engagement matters. I cannot stress enough how important 2024 is for this industry,” said Daniel Fabricant, PhD, president and CEO of the NPA. “If you want a bright future for the natural products industry this is a must attend event. With razor-thin margins in the House and Senate, an important election this November, and monumental issues for the industry such as FDA’s reorganization, it is of the utmost importance that industry stakeholders attend this Fly-In.”
Attendees must be NPA members in good standing. Registration is open and will close on May 1. Hotel reservations are available from May 21-22 at The Hilton Washington DC Capitol Hill, 525 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, D.C. 20001.
