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 legislative leadership speakers, learn more about your local government and the legislative process, represent our industry, and have your voice heard. Join us at the Capitol Campus on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 followed by a luncheon at the Governor's Mansion.
We make appointments with your local legislators for both your business district and home district, so you will see those fields required in the registration form. We 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 and convenience store industry.
