The Natural Products Association (NPA) hosts the 15th Annual Natural Products Day in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, March 27, 2012.

Attendees will visit congressional offices and talk to senators, representatives and their staffs about legislation and regulatory activity that impacts the natural products industry.

“Next year promises to bring a number of challenges and opportunities to the natural products industry on both the legislative and regulatory fronts. Natural Products Day is a great way for the industry to meet with policymakers who can make a difference,” said John Gay, NPA executive director and CEO. “As the leading voice of the industry, the Natural Products Association defends the rights of those who make, sell and use natural products. Next year’s event will allow us to state our case with members of Congress.”
Natural Products Day helps maintain and increase support on Capitol Hill by educating members of Congress about the important role that natural products play in keeping Americans healthy. This annual event hosts retailers, suppliers, manufacturers and supporters who participate in meetings at Congressional offices. There is no registration cost to attendees and all meetings are prearranged by NPA.
Natural Products Day begins with a morning session led by association and government relations experts talking about effective ways to communicate with legislators and providing updates on key legislation and regulations. Following afternoon appointments, attendees attend a reception that honors NPA Congressional Champions—senators and representatives who have worked hard to support initiatives important to the industry.
