Don't miss this chance to Sponsor CPA's Annual Trade Conference!

Every year, CPA and it’s members unite in Washington DC for a week to lobby on trade and tax issues. The first day begins at 9am with issue training followed by prominent speakers, cocktails, and dinner. Our annual dinner boasts C-suite level attendees, engaged in trade enforcement cases and trade policy. This year we have Senators Marco Rubio and Tammy Baldwin. Also U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer will be there. Attendees are primarily manufacturers who have an interest in buying and producing USA made products. Leaders from agricultural and labor organizations will also attend.

This is a unique opportunity to get right in front of prospective clients or customers.

The Coalition for a Prosperous America is a powerful organization of manufacturers, farmers, and ranchers, and workers. We represent the interests of 4.1 million households. Our board and membership includes Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Conservatives and Progressives. We are fighting for a national trade strategy to eliminate the trade deficit, create good paying jobs, and achieve broadly shared prosperity without surrendering our sovereignty. We advocate for trade that promotes manufacturing and agricultural growth, produces jobs and increases incomes.

2019 will prove to be a pivotal year in trade policy

CPA members will be learning and lobbying on crucial issues including the USMCA, trade enforcement, the future of the WTO, currency manipulation and the future of the US/China relationship.
