2017 Fall Legislative Fly-In

September 10, 2017 - September 13, 2017


MN Rep Collin Peterson


NFU will host 275 members in Washington, D.C., for the 2017 Fall Legislative Fly-In on September 10-13, 2017.

During their time in Washington, members will be afforded the opportunity to hear from U.S. Department of Agriculture officials about current events, opportunities and other work the department is doing on behalf of farmers. They will receive briefings from White House officials, U.S. Senate and House of Representatives Committees on Agriculture leadership and staff. NFU also honors members of Congress with one of its highest awards, The Golden Triangle Award.

The most important agenda items of the fly-in, however, are the meetings on Capitol Hill. Teams of Farmers Union members will stop by the office of every member of Congress. Grassroots efforts at their finest, Farmers Union members will highlight the key priorities for the organization, struggles they are facing, and goals for future legislation and the next farm bill.

Fly-In is always an enjoyable time in our nation’s capital. It is also an important an effective way to influence policy. Members of Congress need to hear directly from our family farmers, ranchers, fishermen and rural residents.

Keep up with all things Fly-In on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the hashtag #NFUFlyIn17. For more information about future fly-in activities, please contact your state/regional Farmers Union office.
