Annual Meeting and legislative reception

Join us for the OWA's Annual Meeting and Legislative Reception on Jan. 13 at the Oregon State Capitol in Salem! The meeting begins at 3pm with the reception to follow at 5pm.

At the meeting you will hear from attorneys at Davis Wright Tremaine LLP about the requirements of Oregon’s new sick leave law that goes into effect on Jan. 1 and water issues facing winegrowers. We’ll also discuss OWA’s efforts to address herbicide drift, the impacts of a liquor privatization ballot measure on the wine industry, priorities for the 2016 legislative session, federal advocacy including a proposed excise tax relief bill that could provide a significant new tax benefit to every Oregon winery, and cost savings for members. Take advantage of your opportunity to learn about recent targeted issues and how the OWA is working to protect your business. This is your chance to let us know what is on your mind.
Following the meeting, network with legislators, regulators, and industry colleagues over a glass of Oregon wine. This annual reception allows us to continue to build on the strong and productive relationships we have with Oregon’s decision-makers. Please bring a bottle of wine to share.
