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."

Drive our message to Capitol Hill

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.


Schedule of events

Sept. 15 - Virtual legislative briefing (1 - 5 p.m.)

Your attendance is important

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.

  • ATSSA members are provided with the information and confidence to present key roadway safety infrastructure industry issues directly to members of Congress.
  • Convey the importance of road safety and infrastructure improvements.
  • Articulate contributions your company can make in reducing fatalities and serious injuries and advance our industry’s mission of Toward Zero Deaths.
  • Help ATSSA influence Congress’ decision to provide critical roadway safety infrastructure funds.
  • Meet with members of Congress and congressional staff and develop long-lasting relationships with legislators.

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.
