Same-Day Delivery Industry Lobby Day in Washington Set for 2012

MCAA Holds Fifth Annual Lobby Day on February 28th, 2012
MCAA holds a Government Affairs Lobby Day each spring which allows courier companies to voice their concerns directly with the decision makers. This event is a great opportunity to meet with federal elected officials to educate them on the importance of the courier industry and the vital role it plays in the American economy.

This year’s Government Affairs Lobby Day will be held on Tuesday, February 28th, at the Washington Marriott in Washington, DC. An evening reception will be held on the evening of February 27th.

More information on registration for the meeting and hotel reservations coming soon!

MCAA Government Affairs Lobby Days include a morning education session featuring key Congressional and Washington insiders. Attendees hear how the current political landscape will affect the industry and the likelihood of legislation moving through Congress.

MCAA has been able to arrange a very impressive array of speakers and educational content for the previous Government Affairs Lobby Days. Past congressional speakers have included Congressman John Tanner (D-TN), Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI), Congressman Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Congressman Jim Barrow (D-GA), Congressman Dave Reichert (R-WA), Congressman Tom Price (R-GA), Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite (R-FL), and many congressional policy staffers. Other speakers have included former IRS trial lawyers, NFIB tax policy experts, and several representatives from Washington lobbying firms.

The Government Affairs Lobby Day always contains time in the afternoon for attendees to meet with their federal elected representatives. In advance of the event, MCAA schedules all Capitol Hill meetings and provides each congressional office with some background information on the Association. MCAA has typically scheduled well over 100 meetings each year. This is the highlight of the event for many members and countless valuable contacts have been made through this process.
