About the Conference

The National WIC Association (NWA) invites you to attend our 25th Annual Washington Reach Them, Teach Them, Keep Them Leadership Conference scheduled from March 8 – 10, 2015.

See the tentative agenda.

PLEASE NOTE: Access to this Leadership Conference is limited to the capacity of the main venue. The total capacity is 220. Registration will close when this number is reached.

The conference will provide a forum to discuss Federal initiatives affecting the health and nutritional wellbeing of WIC mothers and young children as well as service delivery and the effective management of the Program.

The goal of this conference is to explore tools to reach, teach, and keep WIC participants and supporters engaged with WIC – the nation's premier public health nutrition program.

We invite you to help NWA ensure policymakers appreciate why WIC must reach every woman, infant and child in need.
