Each spring chemical distributors and their supply chain partners from around the country meet with their elected officials in Washington, DC to educate Members of Congress and push for important policy goals. Meeting face-to-face with legislators is the most effective way to get your message heard on Capitol Hill.
Don't worry if it is your first time joining us on Capitol Hill. Before we head to the hill, we will review our unified message and the legislation for which we will advocate. We will also teach you about lobbying and how to share your story in a way that leaves a notable impact on Congressional representatives. Your experiences are important—we need your voice.
The 2018 NACD Washington Fly-In will be held on April 25-26, 2018 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City in Arlington, VA. Please check back soon for more information.

NOTE: Be wary of travel agency scams: If anyone claiming to be associated with a travel agency and/or “convention housing” contacts you with an offer for booking a hotel room, do NOT provide them with your contact or payment information. This is a scam. NACD does not contract with such firms.
