Vitalpax Executives Dalyon and Ben Ruesch spent the day meeting with government officials in a united effort with fellow members of the Natural Products Association, discussing the relevancy and benefits of dietary supplements.
The Natural Products Association, known as the most effective advocacy organization in the natural products industry, hosted the 22nd Annual Natural Products Day (NPD) on Sept. 10.
“We are the only association in the industry capitalizing on the opportunity to turn out and build alliances with key government leaders. This year at Natural Products Day we demonstrated yet again that we are hands down the strongest advocacy force in the industry,” said Dan Fabricant, Ph.D., President and CEO of NPA.
NPD attendees, who included retailers, suppliers, distributors and other industry consultant members, met with Members of Congress and staff to educate them on the industry’s issues and natural products’ roles in preventive health care and overall wellness. The excitement from Hill meetings culminated with a reception where NPA presented Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC-03) with the “Natural Championship Award,” followed by remarks from Congressman Brian Mast (FL-18) and Congressman Tim Burchett (TN-02).
Attendees met directly with lawmakers and congressional staff from their districts and states to educate them on the natural products industry and current issues. During these meetings, attendees shared position papers provided by NPA to make certain that offices were fully informed on the current issues in the industry, and on the health and economic benefits of natural products.
