2022 NWA Virtual National Policy Conference

February 14-February 17, 2022




About the Conference


Join us for our annual National Policy conference on Monday, February 14, through Thursday, February 17, 2022. This year our conference will take place virtually. 

 

For almost 50 years, WIC has played a crucial role in adequately delivering quality nutrition services and breastfeeding support for American families. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to play a significant role in redefining WIC services, NWA remains persistent in pushing and advocating for common-sense WIC legislation in all levels of government. 

 

The National Policy Conference is our annual forum to highlight emerging and pressing WIC policy issues, promising practices in administering WIC services, and leadership skills to empower and sustain WIC advocacy at the local level.

 

The conference culminates with NWA’s Annual Capitol Hill Education Day on February 17, allowing members to virtually engage with Congressional leaders and their staff on WIC's importance and services. If you have any questions about the Annual Capitol Hill Education Day, please reach out to NWA’s State Public Policy Manager Noora Kanfash at nkanfash@nwica.org.

 

The Conference will start at 11:00 AM EST on Monday, February 14 and will end with the Annual Capitol Hill Education Day on Thursday, February 17 at 5:00 pm EST. The Conference will be held virtually.

 

We look forward to bringing forth more resources, support, and encouragement to our members and stakeholders to help redefine what the future of WIC should be.

 

For questions unrelated to the Annual Capitol Hill Education Day please send them to ConfSupport@nwica.org. Registration information can be found HERE
