Spring Fly-In

Every spring, NACD invites its members to join our staff in Washington, D.C., to promote the interests of conservation districts on Capitol Hill. The 2017 Fly-In agenda for Monday, March 20 and Tuesday, March 21, 2017 is available in draft form below, along with a list of suggested hotels.

If you have any questions about NACD’s lobbying efforts, contact NACD Director of Government Affairs Coleman Garrison.
