ALEXANDRIA, VA – The 2016 National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) Legislative Conference will take place April 10 – 13, 2016, at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

Top political reporter Amy Walter, the national editor of The Cook Political Report, will speak on Monday, April 11, during the general session. She will share her analysis of the unprecedented presidential elections; the culture in Congress; and the Washington political scene.

Walter, who previously served as political director at ABC News, often provides inside analysis on NBC’s Meet the Press, Fox News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier and NewsHour on PBS.
