About the Conference

The National WIC Association (NWA) invites you to attend our virtual National Policy Conference scheduled from Tuesday, February 16th through Friday, February 19th, 2021.

Since 1974, WIC is the nation’s leading public health nutrition program during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood. WIC providers play a critical role in delivering the quality nutrition services and breastfeeding support necessary to grow a healthier and more equitable next generation.


This conference is an annual forum to highlight emergent and pressing WIC policy issues, promising practices in administer WIC services, and leadership skills to empower and sustain WIC advocacy at the local level. Especially in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, WIC is adapting service delivery to modernize the program, embrace technology, integrate health equity, and meet the needs of a new generation of parents. Through the ongoing education and collective advocacy featured at this conference, the National WIC Association and relevant WIC stakeholders can help shape the future of the program and enhance WIC’s impact on public health in the United States.


The conference features NWA’s Annual Capitol Hill Education Day on February 19, affording WIC stakeholders the opportunity to engage with members of Congress and their staff on the state of WIC services. If you have any questions about the Annual Capitol Hill Education Day – or the conference itself – please reach out to NWA’s State Public Policy Associate Noora Kanfash at


The Conference will start at 11:00 AM EST on Tuesday, February 16 and end of Friday, February 19 at 5:00 pm EST.
