Legislative Days 2021 Virtual



This year our Legislative Days event is going virtual. We need your help to advocate for the landscape industry to push forward policy priorities that benefit the industry and your company. Join together with other industry professionals and the NALP government relations team to learn more about the issues that impact our industry so that you can become an advocate for your business.

All you have to do to support the industry and advocate for your business is to join us for informational briefing sessions on the issues on June 14 and then attend the Zoom meetings that we will schedule on your behalf during the June 14 – June 25 time frame. You'll receive background information and handouts on the issues so you will be well prepared to tell your story to the people who can impact your business.

Please be sure to register for this FREE event by June 14, 2021, so we can schedule meetings with your Congressional representatives.
