Legislative Summit

SNAC Members Engage and Educate Washington, DC on Industry Priorities

The Legislative Summit is SNAC International’s annual opportunity for members to visit Washington to meet with Members of Congress to discuss the industry’s key issues and how legislative policy affects their business. Congress needs to hear your first-hand experiences and understand your challenges. Together we can influence legislative and regulatory measures that help your business and employees prosper.

SNAC facilitates meetings with Senators and Representatives, and all first-time attendees are accompanied by a member of the SNAC staff. SNAC also provides thorough briefings in advance to ensure attendees are prepared to discuss the industry’s most pressing issues; including SNAP Choice, sodium reduction, and transportation.

We look forward to you joining us in Washington, DC on June 11-12th.  

This event is FREE for SNAC International Members | $500 each for Non-members.
