Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-6, VA) will address the American Bakers Association’s (ABA) Board of Directors during their Summer Meeting Reception at the National Restaurant Association on June 11, in Washington, D.C.
“Congressman Goodlatte has been a go-to champion for the baking industry on a number of important issues,” said ABA President and CEO Robb MacKie. “The ABA Board will greatly benefit from hearing the Congressman’s perspective on sugar reform, the conservation reserve program and ethanol, among others.”
Congressman Goodlatte has served in a variety of leadership roles within the Agriculture Committee including Chairman and Ranking Member of the Agriculture Committee, Chairman of the Subcommittee on Department Operations, Oversight, Nutrition and Forestry, and Ranking Member of the Subcommittee on Conservation, Credit, Energy and Research. Throughout his service, Congressman Goodlatte has demonstrated outstanding support for the baking industry which ABA recognized last year by naming him one of the recipients of the inaugural Baker’s Dozen Award.
The ABA Board of Directors Meeting features industry leaders representing the interests of the entire ABA membership as they participate in discussions on key issues impacting the baking industry.
