Organic Week in Washington is OTA’s signature policymaking event, comprised of a week full of advocacy and education, including a day for members to conduct trade association business, an informative and thought-provoking policy conference, and an opportunity for members to make their voices heard during hundreds of pre-organized Hill Visits.
This year’s event will once again be held in conjunction with The Organic Center’s Organic Confluences Summit, a two-day conference whose aim is to turn environmental research into actionable policy. Learn more.
