Online registration is now open.

On Tuesday, March 23, 2010, help the Natural Products Association and its members shape healthy public policies at the association’s 13th annual Natural Products Day. Join us in Washington, D.C. for a day of education, advocacy, and celebration. You can make a difference and have fun every step of the way.

What:

Natural Products Day is a fun and effective way to connect with those who represent you in the U.S. Congress. This full day offers you an opportunity to not only meet and mingle with your representatives and their staff during formal meetings and our evening reception, you’ll also have plenty of time to network with your industry colleagues. So that you can relax and enjoy your day on Capitol Hill, NPA takes care of everything for you: breakfast before our lobbying workshops, transportation to Capitol Hill, pre-scheduled meetings with legislators, a gala evening reception and finally returning you to our host hotel. And because we value your time and effort to travel to Washington, there is no cost to attend Natural Products Day.
