Every spring members of the Board come to Washington, DC to advocate on behalf of the milling industry. It is an opportunity for NAMA members to bring a real-world perspective to milling industry issues, make NAMA a familiar name and sought after source of information and to visit with other colleagues on the NAMA Board in a small, informal setting.

Board members meet with appointed and elected government leaders in groups of 3-5. Each group is led by a staff member who works with the group in advance of the meetings and schedules appointments with administration officials, Senate and House committee staffs, and Washington contacts.

Board members are encouraged to visit their individual Congressional representatives before or after the planned sessions.
