A Message Concerning the Cancelation of the 2022 Advocacy Summit
Your health and well-being is our greatest concern. For this reason, and given the current political climate in Washington, D.C., the NFDA Board of Directors does not feel it is in the best interest of our members to hold our annual in-person Advocacy Summit in May. Please be assured we are looking into alternatives that would allow virtual contact with your federal legislators later in 2022. At this time, we are planning to resume our in-person Advocacy Summit event in 2023.
