Washington Fly-In

NACD Trade Focused Virtual Washington Fly-In

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!

Thank you to our sponsors: Echosystem, Columbus Chemical, Greenchem Industries, Fluid Energy Group Ltd., Seeler Industries Inc., Tarr, LLC, Third Coast Terminals, Superior Industrial Solutions, and LyondellBasell Industries.

Speakers

Senator Todd Young represents Hoosiers in the United States Senate. He currently serves on the Senate Committees on Foreign Relations; Health, Education, Labor & Pensions; Commerce, Science & Transportation; and Small Business and Entrepreneurship. A fifth-generation Hoosier, Todd grew up watching his parents work hard in order to support the family. His first jobs were delivering newspapers, mowing lawns, and providing janitorial services at the family business. After graduating from high school, Todd enlisted in the U.S. Navy and one year later was offered an appointment to the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. He graduated with honors in 1995 and accepted a commission in the U.S. Marine Corps. After training as a rifle platoon commander and service as an intelligence officer, Todd was then assigned to lead a recruiting effort in Chicago and northwest Indiana. During this time, he put himself through night school at the University of Chicago, where he earned his MBA with a concentration in economics. In 2000, Todd was honorably discharged from the Navy as a Captain. He spent a year abroad, where he earned a Masters from the School of Advanced Study in London before returning to the United States to work for The Heritage Foundation and later as a legislative assistant in the U.S. Senate. In 2003, Todd returned home to Indiana. He soon met his wife, Jenny, and he again put himself through night school, this time earning his JD from Indiana University. Jenny and Todd married in 2005 and worked together at a small law firm in Paoli, Indiana started by Jenny’s great-grandfather. Today, they reside in Bloomington, Indiana with their four young children: a son, Tucker, and three daughters, Annalise, Abigail and Ava.
