Legislative Briefing & Fly-In
"The Fly-In is a unique opportunity for us to participate on Capitol Hill as a consortium of companies. The industry presence actually helps send the message much more clearly, with real stories and real people behind it."
This year's Legislative Briefing & Fly-In took place in a VIRTUAL format! We drove our message to Capitol Hill from all over the U.S., Sept. 15-16!
While we couldn't meet face-to-face with our legislative leaders due to the impacts of COVID-19, ATSSA realized the importance of effectively engaging our members with their congressional delegation this year to help achieve a highway bill reauthorization.
Save the date for the 2021 event, scheduled for April 21-22.
Sept. 15 - Virtual legislative briefing (1 - 5 p.m.)
Sept. 16 - Virtual legislative visits with Congressional members and staff
Registration for this event is closed. This member-only conference is free to ATSSA members. Attendees must have access to a computer, tablet, or smart phone and internet access.
Participants who previously registered for the in-person conference have had their registration carried over to the virtual option.
Watch a Fly-In promotional video from ATSSA's Nate Smith:
This is a unique opportunity for ATSSA members to interact with high-level policymakers, members of congress and congressional staff, and hear from department of transportation (DOT) officials, all while social distancing.
In addition to making a difference at the Federal level, ATSSA also works to advance roadway safety through grassroots efforts. Working with local ATSSA chapters, the Association's State Government Relations staff is here to help you meet with state elected officials and have your voice heard.
