The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) is holding its annual Washington, DC fly-in March 22-23 during National Ag Week – the first week of spring.
ACE Director of Strategic Projects Shannon Gustafson says there will be lots going on in the nation’s capitol that week so it is a great time for ethanol supporters to be there. “We are trying to coordinate our messages with some of the other groups that are going to be out there,” said Gustafson. National Ag Day activities are being held on March 21.
This is the 9th annual fly-in and coming during the first 100 days of the Trump presidency gives ethanol advocates a timely opportunity to discuss maintaining the Renewable Fuel Standard and expanding market opportunities for higher ethanol blends. “It gives our members an opportunities to share their stories,” said Gustafson who was at the Commodity Classic last week encouraging farmers to attend. “Even if it’s last minute, we’re happy to have you.”
