COVID-19 Update: With travel restrictions imposed by many of our member companies still in effect, and a new quarantine policy issued by Washington, D.C., the NCBFAA has decided to forego hosting an in-person Government Affairs and Annual Conference this year and instead will replace it with a virtual event to be held September 14-18. This change will allow attendees the opportunity to take part in over a dozen educational and informative panels and sessions led by leading subject matter experts and government officials from the comfort of their own home!



NCBFAA Government Affairs and Annual Conference Sponsors



The NCBFAA Government Affairs and Annual Conference (GAC/AC) provides attendees with the opportunity to learn about timely and critically important industry changes directly from the influential players involved as well as make their voices heard when explaining the industry's pressing challenges to their Senators and Congressional Representatives.
