WineAmerica’s annual National Wine Policy Conference features learning, advocacy, and networking in our nation’s capital. This meeting is the industry’s best opportunity to make its voice heard in Congress.
The conference will feature meetings of the WineAmerica Board of Directors and the State and Regional Association Advisory Council and a comprehensive public policy update from the WineAmerica Government Affairs team.
The “Wines of America” reception features wines from over 20 states, demonstrating the importance of the American wine industry to Members of Congress and their staff.
WineAmerica will be coordinating meetings with key congressional staff for our entire group, but if you plan on meeting with your individual state delegations we encourage you to make those arrangements on your own. The WineAmerica full-group meetings show congressional staff a united wine industry as we take our national message to key stakeholders. The individual state delegation meetings allows attendees to share state specific issues, as well as the larger national priorities.
The 2020 Grape & Wine Policy Conference is your opportunity to make a difference regarding the laws that affect you.
All WineAmerica members are encouraged to attend.
