Plant tours offer an excellent way to connect on a personal level with lawmakers, allowing them to learn about the dairy businesses, see firsthand how they operate and discover what they need to be successful. For a limited time, IDFA members that host a member of Congress for a tour of company processing facilities will be entered into a drawing for one complimentary registration for Washington Conference, June 25-26, in Washington D.C.
IDFA's GrassRoots Action Network for Dairy (GRAND) network can help members to:
- Identify and establish a relationship with members of Congress who represent plants, company headquarters or distribution facilities;
- Arrange plant tours or meetings with members of Congress to discuss company or industry issues; and
- Maintain relationships with members of Congress and staff in Washington, D.C., by staying in constant contact with legislators and ensuring that issues important to dairy processors stay in the forefront.
Members interested in arranging a plant tour with a member of Congress and being entered into the drawing may contact Ashley Burch, IDFA assistant director of political programs, at (202) 220-3534 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
