2018 NASDA Partners Program - NASDA's Annualized Approach to Sponsorships

Winter Policy Conference & Annual Meeting Sponsorships Plus Enhanced Networking Opportunities

Relationships make a difference. NASDA is committed to building lasting relationships within the food and agriculture industries and systems. Our partners program not only increases your organization’s visibility, but provides networking opportunities for companies interested in advancing agriculture and food policies at the national level. NASDA Members have a broad range of regulatory and promotional responsibilities.

This program provides your organization with insight on emerging legislative and regulatory issues from state and federal levels. The importance of building and sustaining relationships with elected and appointed officials, as well as with others in the business community and NASDA staff, is key to making a difference in agriculture.

As a NASDA Partner, this program provides a matchless setting to engage on issues that are important to your organization and strengthens your understanding of the issues and trends facing agriculture on both national and international levels.
