Why come to Washington?
·   It is always important to make your company’s voice heard and protect your interests, especially with all of the changes happening in 2017. 

·   Coming to Capitol Hill is an excellent way to establish key contacts and relationships in your lawmaker’s offices.  You never know when you will need to reach out to them for assistance.  

·   It is also a great opportunity to let them know about your company and the importance of what you do in their state and district.

·   In-person meetings with lawmakers and their staffs are the most effective way to communicate with them and they prefer to communicate with constituents by appointment.
