The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) will host its 17th annual Advocacy Day in Washington D.C. as part of Committee Week.
According to a report by RVIA Today, the event will include training on June 5 to prepare participants for the trip to Capitol Hill on June 6, while also allowing them to select federal agencies for meetings on important industry issues. Advocacy Day will be capped by the 5th Annual RV Caucus reception.
“Advocacy Day makes a critical contribution to the association’s federal advocacy efforts by allowing our members to meet with their elected officials, advocate for industry priorities and raise the profile of the RV industry on Capitol Hill,” said Jay Landers, RVIA vice president, government relations. “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 meetings on the Hill is the RV Caucus reception – this year to be held on the U.S. Senate side – where RV industry executives will mingle with over 200 guests, including Members of Congress, senior Hill staff, federal agency representatives and allied industry colleagues.
On the day prior to Advocacy Day, there will be a key training component of Committee Week with breakout sessions to provide prospective participants with more detail on each of the policies that will be made of House and Senate members and their staffs.
