Advocacy: Dairy Counts

Dairy Counts

Every day, decisions are made in Washington, DC that affect the day-to-day operations of the dairy processing industry, touching every aspect of business.  Members can help shape those decisions by getting involved in IDFA's political involvement campaign, Dairy Counts.

Dairy Counts is a dynamic, industry-wide effort to engage and educate IDFA member company executives and employees about the importance of political involvement on dairy policy issues.  Dairy Counts empowers participants with the tools needed to take a more complete and active role in determining the future of federal dairy policy, and entails four key elements:

*Grassroots action on priority issues that will affect your business through the GrassRoots Action Network for Dairy (GRAND).

*Opportunity to pool resources with fellow dairy processors through participation in the International Dairy Foods Association PAC.

*Honoring leaders in Washington who have shown a dedicated commitment to the U.S. dairy foods industry, through the International Dairy Foods Association Leadership Awards.

*Arming you with the information you and your employees need to make an informed decision at the polls on Election Day through Get Out The Vote efforts.
