Legislative Conference is a three-day program dedicated to raising awareness about the public policy issues facing the beef industry and connecting cattlemen and women with policy makers in Washington, D.C. Each year, producers from across the country come together to:
Learn the issues. Participate in briefings and information sessions from NCBA’s issue experts. Topics include tax, trade, Farm Bill, nutrition, food safety, environment, federal lands, and more!
Meet with policy makers. NCBA staff arrange customized meetings where members can meet with their elected officials in Congress and hear directly from agency staff.
Advocate for the industry. Policy makers need to hear directly from the constituents they represent. Your direct, face-to-face advocacy in Washington is vital to the association and to the beef industry as a whole. NCBA staff regularly engage with policy makers, but the most influential meetings are with producers that travel to D.C., bringing local perspective to the beltway.
