2017 Winter State Policy Conference

December 6, 2017

The Winter State Policy Conference provides an opportunity for wholesaler state association leaders to discuss the political and legal issues facing wholesalers across the country. By comparing notes and discussing strategy, the meeting increases the effectiveness of state associations and allows wholesalers to speak with a unified voice. The WSWA staff use this as an opportunity to receive input from state associations leaders and the implementation of national legislative and legal goals.
