OIA CAPITOL SUMMIT
2020 OIA Capitol Summit is now Postponed
We have postponed the April 2020 Capitol Summit in Washington, D.C.?We hope to reschedule this at a future date as we still have important legislation and information to share with congressional leaders around how the outdoors and the outdoor recreation economy contribute to the well-being of our citizens, communities and our country, especially in times such as these. We appreciate your understanding. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or concerns.
WHAT IS CAPITOL SUMMITCapitol Summit is the outdoor industry’s premiere advocacy event in Washington, D.C. Industry executives from across the country come to educate their elected officials in Congress on key issues impacting their businesses. You’ll have the opportunity to hear from agency, administration and elected officials during our education sessions, and build valuable relationships with your industry peers.
WHAT TO EXPECTThis event provides great insight into our government’s decision-making process in Washington, D.C. Attendees receive an introductory training on lobbying as well as education on OIA’s policy agenda and legislative priorities. We will serve as your guide to navigating the Hill and provide timely background information and training on the industry’s policy agenda, legislative priorities and members of Congress. Attendees will leave with a full understanding of how to schedule and conduct congressional meetings on the Hill as well as tools and skills to take home and make an impact in your state.
THE IMPORTANCE TO ALL OUTDOOR BUSINESSESCapitol Summit builds the outdoor industry’s relationship with Congress by discussing our business issues and their related decisions, face to face. After each Capitol Summit, leaders in Congress champion our issues, sign on to sponsor and co-sponsor relevant legislation, circulate our legislation to their peers and across the aisle, attend Outdoor Retailer and arrange tours of companies’ facilities in their home state. Capitol Summit has direct results at engaging Congress in the outdoor industry.
