Advocacy Day 2017
Wednesday, June 7
RVIA’s 2017 Capitol Hill Advocacy Day
On Wednesday, June 7, 2017, RVIA members will visit Congressional offices to raise awareness of the RV industry and issues affecting the industry. Capitol Hill Advocacy Day has raised the profile of both the RV industry and RVIA in the eyes of Congress. This event makes a critical contribution to RVIA's federal advocacy efforts by allowing members to meet with elected officials and their staffers, forge relationships beneficial to business and discuss current issues with legislators.
In the past few years alone, the relationships cemented on Advocacy Day have: increased membership in the House and Senate RV Caucuses; resulted in the passage of the Outdoor Recreation's Economic Contributions (REC) Act; and facilitated Congressional support for the electronic logging device exemption, axle weight increase for motorhomes, the renewal of the Generalized System of Preferences, and several other industry initiatives.
As always, RVIA will schedule the Hill meetings, provide background materials and training on the industry and specific policies, and help escort the groups around Capitol Hill. Both the House and Senate will be in session so we are hoping to schedule meetings with as many Members of Congress as possible. In addition to meeting with Members of Congress, staff will also be scheduling meetings with key federal agencies. Following the Hill meetings is the RV Caucus reception where RV industry executives will mingle with over 200 guests, including Members of Congress, senior Hill staff, federal agency representatives and allied industry colleagues.
Join your industry friends and associates while experiencing a "day of advocacy" on Capitol Hill!
Advocacy Day is part of RVIA's Committee Week taking place June 4-8. Find out more about all the Committee Week events.
