Organic Week in Washington, D.C.

Finally, together again.

If you commit to one event to reconnect with the organic community, make it this one.

Organic Week in Washington, D.C.
January 31- February 2, 2022

Join us for 72-hours in the nation’s capital to work on solutions for the complex issues surrounding organic food and farming. We will focus on continuous improvement in organic, celebrate organic leaders, and advance organic policy priorities.

The InterContinental Hotel provides an all-inclusive experience with enhanced sanitation procedures to limit contact in public spaces and keep guests safe during Organic Week events.

Three days in one location, reunited again!



Day 1 will have you rolling up your sleeves and finding solutions (Monday January 31, 2022)
MEMBER DAY starts with a workshop on repairing the public-private partnership and advancing continuous improvement in organic. It’s been 30 years since Congress passed the law that established the national organic program. What should the future of organic look like for the next 30 years? A day of roundtable discussions and thought provoking breakouts will be finished off by a networking reception and celebratory dinner in honor of this inspiring week! 

Day 2 will leave you inspired (Tuesday February 1, 2022)
CONFERENCE DAY, in partnership with Food Tank, will deliver a powerful collaboration that promises to bring to the forefront the complex issues surrounding organic food and farming. It will facilitate open and thoughtful discussions by organic industry leaders, policy experts, organic farmers, retailers and everyone in between looking for clarity on what’s happening now, how to prepare for the future and how to continue advancing organic. This will be the first Food Tank summit focused exclusively on organic agriculture.

Day 3 will have you on your feet (Wednesday February 2, 2022)
 is a meaningful way to lend your voice and help educate the nation’s top policymakers on the importance of organic. Members will work in small teams to attend hundreds of pre-scheduled meetings across Capitol Hill. We’ll toast a full day of advocating for organic with cocktails and appetizers, side by side with policy makers, during our Congressional Reception.

Monday’s Member Day workshops and Wednesday’s Advocacy Day meetings are offered exclusively to Organic Trade Association Members. To learn more about the many benefits of membership contact the Organic Trade Association.
