NBB members pack their bags for DC

By NBB | April 21, 2011

For the biodiesel industry, June not only brings the start of summer, it also means it is time to pack your bags for the nation’s capital. The National Biodiesel Board June membership meeting held annually in Washington, D.C., is the place where biodiesel producers and supporters meet to shape the future of the biodiesel industry.

On the agenda are important federal regulatory issues like the long-term status of the biodiesel tax incentive and implementation of the RFS2. With 2011 being the first full year of implementation of the revised renewable fuel standard, it will be very important to address its progress and prepare for increased volume requirements.

“This meeting provides an excellent opportunity for members of the biodiesel industry to shape the direction of their businesses on the national level,” said NBB Chairman Gary Haer. “This is a critical year for our industry and our future. We need your voice and action in that effort. I encourage every member to consider taking advantage of this opportunity.”

NBB will again assist members in setting up Congressional visits while in Washington. These grassroots visits led by members of the industry continue to be paramount to achieving the board’s long-term vision and legislative priorities.  

“Meeting face-to-face with elected officials in Washington is one of the most effective ways of communicating the status and needs of your business and the entire industry,” Haer added.
As always, members will get the inside track on what’s happening in all areas of the industry, and learn about the progress of NBB in meeting industry objectives through technical, regulatory and marketing programs. 

Watch for more information via email and the members only site for agendas and registration instructions.


The NBB membership meeting takes place:
June 13-15, 2011
L’Enfant Plaza Hotel
Washington, D.C.
