Irrigation is a vital part of a safe and reliable food supply, keeps U.S. agriculture globally competitive and helps maintain healthy, sustainable green spaces in communities across the nation. It’s up to us to make sure Congress recognizes the value of our industry by enacting legislation and policies that promote efficient irrigation and good water management practices. Join us as we walk the halls of Congress and tackle problems facing the industry in 2020!
The fly-in offers members a unique opportunity to
- experience Capitol Hill and meet with your congressional offices.
- learn about water-focused legislative priorities that could impact your business.
- engage in lively discussions with senior congressional staff and your elected representatives.
- be a leader and spokesperson for the irrigation industry.
- make new connections and have fun!
The fly-in will take place on March 3-4, 2020. Participants must plan to arrive in Washington, D.C. on March 2. The two-part event will consist of congressional Hill visits and a Water Resources Congressional Summit. The summit is co-hosted with the National Ground Water Association and the Water Quality Association.
Prior experience is not required to participate in this event. IA staff will brief participants on the topics that will be discussed during the congressional meetings and how to interact with your representatives.
