Washington, DC Fly-in & Government Affairs Summit
Every year, ACE brings ordinary, hard-working people from all corners of ethanol industry to Washington, DC to meet with members of Congress and their staffs. It’s one of our flagship efforts to humanize our industry and deliver the story of grit and passion from the people who know it best. Congress is eager to hear from real people, and participants say their visit to Capitol Hill is one the highlights of their lives.
The annual ACE Fly-In is one of the most effective means to promote ethanol where it counts.

"I believe the ACE fly-in allowed middle America to showcase some of its greatest talents and achievements. Ethanol is one of the many benefits the farm industry has, and has proven time and time again to be a safe and reliable fuel. ACE has been a leader in biofuels discussion and an organization many can look to for leadership."

"Meeting with congressional representatives during the ACE fly-in was a wonderful experience. It not only provided us the opportunity to speak on a topic we feel passionate about to individuals who can influence policy, but in many cases, it also allowed us to educate individuals on the benefits and misunderstandings surrounding ethanol."
-Ann Reis, Southwest Iowa Renewable Energy
ACE Board Member Representing Redfield Energy, Farmer
"Now is the time to tell ethanol's story of being beneficial to the air we breathe. As citizens demand a cleaner environment, the ethanol industry is positioned to meet those demands. The ‘real’ science needs to be out there about the low carbon footprint of corn ethanol as well. There's no better platform to do this than the ACE fly-in."
-Troy Knecht, ACE Board Member Representing Redfield Energy, Farmer
