The WFIA annual “Day at the State Capitol” is open to all members. We visit with key legislative leadership on business and food industry issues. This is an excellent opportunity to hear from leadership speakers, learn more about your government and the legislative process, represent our industry, and have your voice heard. Join us in the Columbia Room at the Legislative Building Capitol Campus on Tuesday, January 16th followed by a reception at the Governor's Mansion for beverages and appetizers.
We make appointments with your local legislators, team you up with other members, brief you on current issues, and send you off to have a great time lending your voice to the advocacy of the well-being of the independent grocery industry.
