Chamber members are invited to be a part of the Quad Cities delegation traveling to Washington, D.C. March 21-23 to advocate for issues of importance to our region.
Over the course of three days, guests will meet with all six members of the Quad Cities congressional delegation, attend a formal reception with elected officials, and meet with leadership from the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration, U.S. Department of Transportation, and the Pentagon.
As our elected officials develop policy at the federal level, this is a chance to convey, as a region, how their policies will impact local businesses and our community.
In addition to these important advocacy meetings, guests will also have the opportunity for sightseeing expeditions and additional networking with local colleagues during the evening. Register here.
Thanks to the sponsors of this trip: Major Sponsor, Exelon; Reception sponsor, Shive Hattery; as well as our government affairs annual sponsors, Arconic, Bush Construction Company, Mediacom, and Restoration St. Louis.
