About the GCCA Cold Chain Policy Forum

See Who's Attending the 2019 Cold Chain Policy Forum 


The Cold Chain Policy Forum, organized by the Global Cold Chain Alliance (GCCA), is the premier policy event and fly-in for businesses engaged in temperature-controlled logistics. The primary audience includes third-party transportation, warehousing, and logistics providers, food processors and manufacturers, retailers, and related industry associations. This program was formerly called the GCCA Assembly of Committees Meeting.

Over the past few years the Assembly of Committees (AOC) meeting, held in Washington, DC every July, has transitioned into a policy oriented event with education sessions and keynote presentations focused on rules and regulations and their impact on the cold chain. In 2019, that regulatory focus will continue and expand. Because of this transition, a number of GCCA’s committees have indicated that they would find more value in assembling during the Global Cold Chain Expo instead of at the policy meeting in DC. For more information on which committees will be meeting at the Expo please visit – https://www.gcca.org/events/assembly-committees

The Government Affairs and Safety Committees as well as GCCA committees focused on association governance (executive committees, finance committee, insurance committee, etc.) will still continue to hold their meetings in conjunction with the GCCA Cold Chain Policy Forum in DC (July 29-31, 2019) – see the Schedule for more details.

Also, as you think about which team members you will send to GCCA events in 2019 please make sure to review the list of events and the audience each event is designed for here.
