Come to D.C., Advocate, and Act Locally

Why Participate?

Although NALP works year round with members of congress and the administration representing your professional interests, in today’s political world that is simply not enough. Your voice carries the most weight with politicians. Your connection to a member of congress’ district, and knowledge of how issues directly impact the “folks back home” are simply the most powerful advocacy tools available.

Are All Politics Really Local?

Yes - particularly now, in the current political climate, and especially as it relates to regulatory issues in our industry. Grassroots efforts in local jurisdictions to protect the growth and economic health of our industry are absolutely critical to our future. Hone your advocacy skills at the highest level, in the halls of Congress, and put lessons learned to work at home for your business and the collective good for our industry.

What's New

This is your best opportunity to network with other landscape professionals and go in-depth about the legislative and regulatory issues of utmost significance to landscape and lawn care businesses. While the event concludes with appointments on Capitol Hill, your take away’s will include:

  • Becoming a Washington “insider” on the legislative and regulatory agenda for our industry in the coming year.
  • Helping you become a more effective advocate on both the national and local stages.
  • Understanding of the issues that are most crucial to your interests and your business.
  • Gaining a complete understanding on the national political landscape in one of the most contentious election years in memory.

Your Industry Needs You!

Without a strong and unified voice we are at a significant disadvantage when policy discussions occur, and there are many forthcoming. Our collective voice is instrumental in helping to ensure that we benefit rather than suffer when policy changes that impact our industry occur.
