Registration is now open for OTA’s Annual Policy Conference and Hill Visit Days May 14-15 in Washington, D.C. This is your time to make an impact for organic. All aspects of the organic value chain are affected by funding eliminations in the recent nine-month Farm Bill extension. It will take a unified industry effort to regain financial support for these vital programs, which include organic certification cost share, long-term organic agricultural research, and much more. OTA’s signature policymaking event kicks off with a full day of briefings from policy influencers. Industry members will then make their voices heard as they embark on pre-arranged visits with key Members of Congress. We have our work cut out for us this year; your participation has never been more vital. For more information, contact Angela Jagiello.
We need your voice in Washington!
