WASHINGTON — The Natural Products Association last week announced the 14th annual Natural Products Day to be held here April 6, 2011.
Natural Products Day provides an opportunity for NPA members and others in the industry to meet with members of Congress. Attendees will visit congressional offices and talk to senators, representatives and their staffs about key legislation that may impact the natural products industry.
“Natural Products Day is a great way for industry members to get a foot in the door of the policy-makers who can make a difference,” stated John Gay, NPA executive director and CEO. “Nothing makes a greater impact on elected officials than a face-to-face meeting with a constituent.”
The day will begin with a morning session led by association and government relations experts talking about effective ways to communicate with legislators and providing updates on key legislation. Following afternoon appointments, attendees will attend a reception on Capitol Hill that honors NPA Congressional Champions — legislators who have worked hard to support initiatives important to the industry.
