Dairy Facts 2016


Registration is now open for IDFA's Advocacy Days. Formerly known as Washington Conference, the industry’s popular legislative “fly-in” is scheduled to be held June 17-18 in Washington, D.C. IDFA changed the name this year to emphasize the important role that members play in advocating on Capitol Hill for policies that will enable their companies to prosper, grow and create jobs.

Advocacy Days will be held at The Washington Court Hotel, conveniently located on Capitol Hill and close to many major Washington attractions. The program will include many popular events from the past, including a briefing by IDFA’s top policy experts on pending legislation that will affect dairy processors, and face-to-face meetings with members of Congress and administration officials.
