FEDA has announced that its Advocacy Council will travel to Washington D.C towards the end of September in an effort to educate congress members about the foodservice equipment industry.
The trip will take place from September 25-26, and will see the group participate in a special meeting with the US Chamber of Commerce in addition to visiting members of Congress.
It is something of a landmark for the industry body, marking the first time that FEDA leaders have met as a group with elected members of the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.
According to FEDA, its mission is to increase policymakers’ understanding of the foodservice equipment industry and to expand congressional leader support for FEDA during critical legislative decisions.
The two-day event will start with a presentation delivered by FEDA members outlining priority legislation for business from the US Chamber, followed by a fly-in team presentation and congressional visits briefing.
The second day of the visit will see the Advocacy Council will meeting with congressional leaders and staff at the U.S. Capitol building.
FEDA has said that any members who would like to join the Advocacy Council and participate in these events should contact Tracy Mulqueen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 224-293-6501.
