This year’s Lobby Days will take place in Washington, D.C. on November 15 and 16th. With the full return to in-person meetings, Whitmer & Worrall (W&W) will be setting up two types of meetings: 1) Congressional Office Visits and 2) Reception/Lunch Invitations. Please register your intent to attend as soon as possible so that we can start the requests to meet with the correct congressional offices. Schedule and hotel options are available here.
Throughout the months of the pandemic, the Geosynthetic Materials Association (GMA) has continued major efforts to maintain our influence with federal and state governments to position our industry for success. With the passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation (BIL), conversations with our congressional relations will be critical to ensure geosynthetic inclusion in the projects that will be funded by the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA) and a strong attendance will ensure our ability to visit all the offices.
Congressional Office Visit – As in years past where we could walk the halls of congress and visit offices with unlimited attendees, the offices have re-opened to visits yet some are limiting the numbers, so depending on the specifics of the office, we will be assigning attendees based on your congressional districts.
Reception/Lunch Invitations – Based on our prior success with inviting members of Congress to join us for an extended reception/lunch (11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.), this will be our third reception. The setting allows for members to visit with us in a relaxed setting away from the confines of their offices while still allowing the representative to address our whole group.
