In honor of our 50th anniversary, we’ve debuted the NACD Site Visit Program 50 for 50 Member Challenge. With an eye toward reaching our goal to secure at least 50 NACD site visits this summer, participating NACD member companies will compete in a raffle for a number of excellent prizes provided by the association.
With congressional visits being suspended for over a year due to the pandemic and the many challenges facing our industry like cargo shipping delays, potentially increasing TSCA fees, and ongoing rail issues, hosting Members of Congress for a one-on-one meeting is more important than ever.
Inviting Members of Congress to tour your facility and discuss industry issues is an effective way for them to see firsthand the important work done at chemical distribution facilities. NACD staff will reach out to your Members of Congress, brief you on specific legislation, and if necessary, join you and your elected officials personally on-site or virtually.
All participants will be featured on NACD social media properties, and the top five winners randomly selected from the drawing will receive a framed letter of recognition signed by their Member of Congress -plus- an NACD 50th anniversary swag bundle. The NACD member who hosts the most site visits this summer will secure the grand prize: a complimentary NACD registration to the next Washington Fly-in. The contest closes on September 30, 2021.
Here's how to participate:
Don't worry if it is your first time hosting a site visit. Before we jump into meetings, we will review our unified message and the legislation for which we will advocate. We will also teach you about how to share your story in a way that leaves a notable impact on Congressional representatives.
Still feeling nervous? Don't worry a representative from NACD will join your site visit to ensure that it runs smoothly!
