Lobbying Group to Hold D.C. Fly-In in September

The Hardwood Federation will hold its annual Washington, D.C., Fly-In on Sept. 19-20; the lobbying group characterizes the event as an opportunity to reach influential policy makers.

Top issues expected to be discussed with representatives during the Fly-In include economic recovery, hardwood product advocacy, the Farm Bill, green building, U.S. Forest Service management of land, and the Lacey Act, according to a survey of members the Hardwood Federation recently completed.

Hardwood industry representatives will have the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the Obama Administration, as well as members of the U.S. Congress and their staff. For more information, contact Deb Hawkinson at deb.hawkinson@hardwoodfederation.com.

The Hardwood Federation is a wood products industry lobbying group of which the NWFA is a part.
