Please join us in Washington, DC for our Annual DC Advocacy Event. PTNPA Members have the unique opportunity to hear from experts on the current regulatory and political landscape and receive updates on key issues facing the nut industry.

The event is focused on conducting Congressional Meetings, giving PTNPA Members the opportunity to discuss issues of importance to you and your business. We will also be delivering member product samples along with pamphlets of educational industry information to Congressional offices. If you want to help get nut industry products in the hands of the decision makers in DC, join us as we show them how healthy, safe, far-reaching, and powerful our industry is to the economy and our country.

There is no cost or registration fee for PTNPA members to participate in this event. Travel and hotel accommodations are the responsibility of each individual PTNPA member.
