Organic Week DC Influencer Program Application


Calling all Influencers who want to make an IMPACT!

Applications are now open for Organic Trade Association's first-ever Influencer Program in conjunction with Organic Week D.C. May 20-22. 

About Organic Week D.C.

Year after year, organic businesses converge in Washington, D.C. for the Organic Trade Association’s signature advocacy and policy-making event, Organic Week in Washington, D.C. This year, #OrganicWeekDC is all about the organic sector doubling-down on big ideas and better solutions. In the backdrop of the nation’s capital, we’ll explore leading-edge thinking, discuss bold strategies, and take incremental steps to advance policy and private sector solutions.

These days, marketing professionals across a wide variety of industries are deciding how they will incorporate Influencer Marketing into their brand strategies. In addition to answering this question, organic businesses are asking themselves how organic activism aligns with their brand strategies. There is no better time to bring together Influencers and organic businesses to explore these opportunities. Organic Trade Association will invite social media Influencers and brand ambassadors to Capitol Hill to see advocacy in action and cover the event for their own audiences.

Program Details

Influencers who are selected to attend the event will be invited to participate in a wide range of Organic Week D.C. meetings and activities. Arriving Monday, May 20, participants are invited to attend social media and advocacy day trainings during Member Day, and join Organic Weekers on a Capitol Bus Tour in the evening. On Advocacy Day, Influencers will hit the Hill with OTA members for Hill meetings and get a first-hand look at how organic businesses go above and beyond brand strategy to advocate for organic policy priorities. They will be invited to join us at the Congressional Reception following Hill meetings, and to attend the Bold Ideas and Critical Conversations as well. Along the way, Influencers will chronicle the event on their social channels and follow up with a blog post about their experience – bringing even more public awareness to #OrganicWeekDC and the organic businesses that are doing the work to keep organic thriving.

Application Details
