Washington D.C. Fly-In 2021
Tuesday, November 2, 2021 9:00 AM - Wednesday, November 3, 2021 3:00 PM (CDT)
The Longview Chamber of Commerce's Business Advocacy team invites you to participate in our East Texas Coalition DC Fly-In. Planning has begun to develop an itinerary! This trip provides Chamber members the opportunity to meet with their representatives and engage in dialogue on issues impacting their businesses.
Whether you are experienced at contacting elected officials or someone who'd like to learn how to have your legislative and business concerns addressed by your elected representatives, this event affords the opportunity to meet with officials and their staff in the congressional office building. Drawing from member input, Chamber staff will draft a list of key business issues as well as background information for participants to review and add to prior to the Fly-In. This information prepares participants in initiating the conversations with their representatives.
Activities begin at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday and will conclude late Wednesday afternoon after Capitol Hill visits. Group dinners are being planned for both Tuesday and Wednesday evening. Each participant is responsible for securing their own travel and hotel accommodations. A registration fee of $350 will help defer the cost of prepared materials, on-site transportation, lunches on Tuesday and Wednesday as well as the dinners.
