2017 IWLA Council Summit & Regulatory Fly-in

October 25 – 26, 2017

Washington DC


Members who handle food or chemicals – or whose business includes dealing with transportation issues of all kinds – are invited to the Oct. 25 & 26 IWLA Council Summit & Regulatory Fly-in. The IWLA Food Council, the IWLA Chemical Council, and the IWLA Transportation Advisory Council are organizing half-day educational and networking sessions Oct. 25 in their specialty areas.

This event, in conjunction with IWLA’s semiannual convergence in the U.S. capital, is the perfect opportunity for IWLA members discuss timely issues and hear from congressional and regulatory experts. In addition, on Oct. 26 many attendees will have the chance to meet personally with their congressional contacts to share the warehouse logistics perspective on legislation.  

Registration is open for the fall 2017 IWLA Council Summit & Regulatory Fly-in. You can attend just your council session or the entire event – including a broader government affairs update on Oct. 26.
