Washington, DC Fly-In

Be the voice of the irrigation industry on Capitol Hill.

Irrigation is a vital part of a safe and reliable food supply, keeps U.S. agriculture globally competitive and helps maintain healthy, sustainable green spaces in communities across the nation. It’s up to us to make sure Congress recognizes the value of our industry by enacting legislation and policies that promote efficient irrigation and good water management practices.

The fly-in offers members a unique opportunity to

  • experience Capitol Hill and meet with your congressional offices.
  • learn about water-focused legislative priorities that could impact your business.
  • engage in lively discussions with senior congressional staff and your elected representatives.
  • be a leader and spokesperson for the irrigation industry.
  • make new connections and have fun!

As the next fly-in is scheduled, more information will be posted on this webpage and in IA communications. Contact the government affairs team for more information.

Participating in the IA’s fly-in has been incredibly valuable to me both professionally and personally. I have had the opportunity to bring the industry’s message to Congress and the White House. The experience keeps me coming back!

The IA’s fly-ins are a great member benefit. The opportunity to build relationships with policymakers and continue those relationships in our district is worth the effort.
