NUCA Washington DC Summit is a national event when representatives of the local NUCA chapters travel to DC to meet with your elected officials. The Summit starts with an all-day policy meeting. The message to be delivered to members of Congress is reviewed and discussed. National provides message materials, and strategies for presenting the message are reviewed. Everything possible is prepared to simplify the message for the members of Congress. Many times the message references active bills in Congress or Committee that if passed would have a favorable impact on our business.
The next day, are direct face to face meetings with Congress members. These meeting have been set up weeks in advance to reserve time with Congress members. We are able to sit down in a quiet environment, and deliver the message along with stories describing the impact to voters back home. To aim is to get commitment from each meeting in support of the DC Summit objectives.
The objective of the DC Summit is to directly in person influence Congress to pass favorable bills and share struggles being impacted by unfavorable laws. Many of these bills and laws have a direct impact on excavation and utility construction.
