NPC’s annual Washington Summit provides a forum for potato industry members to discuss, define, and advocate for the policy priorities impacting their businesses and protecting their ability to farm.

Throughout the week, participants:

  • Hear from the nation’s top political and policy experts
  • Welcome NPC’s new officers and grower leaders
  • Meet with members of Congress representing potato-growing states and districts
  • … and unite as an industry in Standing Up for Potatoes on Capitol Hill!

During the 2024 NPC Washington Summit, attendees will advocate for issues such as keeping potatoes in federal nutrition programs, promoting free and fair-trade agreements, and protecting tax policies that support the long-term health of family-owned farming operations.
