Industry Members Prepare to head to Washington, D.C.

Even as the partial government shutdown continues, floral industry members are preparing to make their case to lawmakers this spring.

“Make YOUR Business the Hill’s Business” is the floral industry’s call to action for the Society of American Florists’ 39th annual Congressional Action Days, March 11-12, in Washington, D.C. The more members who join in the process, the more effective the message.
