IA Times, February 2019

Join us & be a strong voice on Capitol Hill

Book your hotel by Feb. 8!

March 5-6 is your chance to make an impact and carry irrigation’s message straight to Congress. The Irrigation Association is proud and excited to once again host our Washington, D.C., fly-in, as we join with the National Ground Water Association and the Water Quality Association for the 2019 Water Resources Congressional Summit. During these two days, you will

  • experience Capitol Hill and the legislative process up close and personal.
  • take part in lively discussions with senior congressional staff regarding the new Congress and what it means for water-focused legislation.
  • meet with your congressional offices.
  • have a unique opportunity to be a true leader and spokesperson for the irrigation industry.

The fly-in is open to employees of IA-member companies only. Registration is now open, and the cost is $200 to attend. However, if you become an advocate member of the IA, the registration fee is only $100. There is no cost to become an advocate member. Complete and return the advocate membership application to take advantage of this discount. When registering, insert ADV19 in the coupon code box during the checkout process.
