Goodlatte is leading the march on Capitol Hill for sugar reform and will share details about the IBA’s efforts as well as the Farm Bill. IBA will also honor Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) and Senator Mark Warner (D-Va.) with the Horst G. Denk Award for legislative service, and is arranging meet-and-greets for attendees with senators and representatives on Capitol Hill.

In addition, the meeting will include a business preparedness speaker offering important advice regarding natural and expected disasters.
