NACD Trade Focused Virtual Washington Fly-In

NACD Trade Focused Virtual Washington Fly-In

January 26, 2021 | Noon-3:00 PM ET | Register Here

Each spring chemical distributors and their supply chain affiliates from around the country gather in Washington, D.C. to meet with their Members of Congress and regulators to educate and advocate for important policy goals. Well, clearly this year things are going to be a little different, but it doesn't change the fact that meeting 'face-to-face' with those who craft and enforce our laws is the most effective way to get your message through to Capitol Hill and federal agencies.

This year, on January 26 from Noon to 3:00 p.m. ET, we will have our first-ever NACD Trade Focused Virtual Fly-In! From discussing the Miscellaneous Tariff Bill to the renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences, we're excited to dive deep with high-ranking legislators and regulators from Capitol Hill to discuss all things trade!

Your experiences are important, and your presence will be noted by our guest speakers—we need your voice and we hope you'll join us!
