The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE) has announced its 13th annual DC Fly-in and Government Affairs Summit will take place March 14-15, 2024, assuming Congress will be in session on those dates.

Building off this past spring’s successful return to Capitol Hill, ACE is eager to continue hosting one of the industry’s longest-running and successful fly-ins for biofuels advocates.

“We encourage ethanol supporters to mark their calendars for the ACE fly-in March 14-15,” said Brian Jennings, ACE CEO. “Taking place in an election year, our gathering presents a strategic opportunity to underscore the significance and vitality of a robust U.S. ethanol industry to Members of Congress, their dedicated staff and key decision makers with EPA, USDA and the Treasury Department.”

“In the 12-year legacy of ACE’s DC fly-ins, the most impactful gatherings have struck a balance between engaging with our staunch supporters and reaching out to Members of Congress who may be unfamiliar, hold differing views on our policy priorities, or hail from regions outside the Corn Belt,” said Katie Muckenhirn, Vice President of Government Affairs. “While lawmakers routinely hear from lobbyists and association representatives, the power of a deeply personal perspective showcasing the direct benefits of the ethanol industry can provide a fresh and compelling viewpoint on our issues.”

The meetings will take place on Capitol Hill and at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. For more information about the event, please contact Katie Muckenhirn at, Ashley Borchert at or visit
