Fly-In event in a push to make a difference on issues affecting the potato industry. The Potato D.C. Fly-In is aimed at advocating for the industry in the center of the action, the nation’s Capital. The Fly-In features speakers from the political and policy arenas who address key issues facing the potato industry. More than a hundred participants met face-to-face during the 2018 Fly-In with members of Congress and key staff to communicate industry priorities, and to convey real-life farming practices to influential administration officials and regulators on Capitol Hill. John Keeling, executive Vice President and CEO of the National Potato Council that hosted the event, said delegates addressed pressing issues such as trucking shortages, research matters, and trade – in particular the current NAFTA trade negotiations.
