TRSA Legislative Conference: One Industry, One Voice
The TRSA 10th Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, DC, on March 25-26, 2020, is your best opportunity to establish relationships and help educate our nation’s legislators on the issues that are important to you and your linen, uniform and facility services business.
The conference agenda includes an opening keynote, a Hill Day issue briefing, TRSAPAC reception and an Industry Awards dinner on March 25, 2020. The following day, TRSA members will head to Capitol Hill for a meeting with legislators followed by a luncheon with a member of Congress. New for 2020 is a registration rebate offer for TRSA members that allows up to 100% of the conference registration fees to be recouped following full attendance at this event.
Attendees of the Legislative Conference will hear detailed and savvy political and electoral analysis from keynote presenter A.B. Stoddard. Stoddard is an associate editor and columnist with the political news site and polling data aggregator RealClearPolitics as well as a contributor and guest host for SiriusXM’s POTUS Channel. She also appears on the Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, CNN and MSNBC as a political commentator.
Pre-Hill Day you’ll also gather with other members of your group to formulate strategy to convey the industry’s positions to policymakers. Strategizing will continue at the TRSAPAC Reception.
On Wednesday evening, March 25, 2020, a celebration of industry creativity and excellence will come in the form of TRSA’s Industry Awards Dinner. All operator and associate member companies and their employees are eligible to be nominated for these awards.
