About the Conference


The National WIC Association (NWA) invites you to attend our 28th Annual Washington Leadership Conference scheduled from Sunday, March 4th through Tuesday, March 6th, 2018.

Access to this Conference is limited to the capacity of the main venue's general session meeting room, which is currently set at 220. Registration will close when this number is reached.

The conference will provide a forum to discuss Federal initiatives affecting the health and nutritional well-being of WIC mothers and young children as well as service delivery and the effective management of the Program. More details regarding the conference agenda will be available in the Fall of 2017.

We invite you to help NWA ensure policymakers at all levels of government appreciate the real value of WIC.
