Day on the Hill

AHPA partners with CRN to produce this unique advocacy opportunity

Published: Friday, February 2, 2018

Event date: 6/12/2018 5:00 PM - 6/13/2018 5:30 PM Export event

AHPA and the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) will convene an annual advocacy day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on June 13, 2018. This is an opportunity for industry executives to engage with Congressional offices about the benefits of dietary supplements and herbal products, legislative developments and the importance of these products to constituents' health and wellness, and the economy.

AHPA member company executives—including company presidents, regulatory experts, and government relations executives—with a vested interest in legislative activity in Congress—fly in from across the nation, for a full day of networking and discussions with members of Congress and their staff. Known as the “Day on the Hill,” this event encourages AHPA member companies to take an active role in advocating for reasonable regulation and to put a face on the responsible dietary supplement industry. Participation in the Day on the Hill is an opportunity for CRN’s member companies to share their voices on Capitol Hill in a meaningful way.
