2016 WDMA Spring Meeting & Legislative Conference  

 April 4-6, 2015

Washington, DC

Registration is now open for WDMA's Spring Meeting and Legislative Conference which will take place from April 4-6, 2016 at the Renaissance DuPont Hotel in Washington, D.C. This conference is an incredible opportunity to remind leaders of the importance of our industry and advance the advocacy agenda of WDMA.

Congress and the White House continue to clash on a range of issues from labor to taxes to the environment. And even though 2016 is an election year, progress continues on policies that could have a major effect on your business. We promise you that your time will be well spent hearing from political leaders and walking the halls of Capitol Hill to make sure our collective legislative priorities and concerns are shared with leaders that can make a difference. No one knows our legislative challenges b etter than you, and through telling your personal stories you become a persuasive and powerful advocate for policies that will make the economy and our industry stronger. Register today to make your voice heard!
