Meetings with Members of Congress are critically important to a successful advocacy strategy on Capitol Hill.
Through your participation during these critical days, we will use our collective voice to advance these issues on behalf of our industry. Participants in the Conference will take part in issue briefings and engage with Members of Congress and Washington insiders while gaining a unique perspective on the legislative process. All registrants have the opportunity to meet with legislative leaders in their offices and at our Congressional Reception.
NECA staff will ensure that all participants will have the opportunity to meet with their members of Congress and will provide assistance in helping them communicate effectively with prepared position papers and preparatory meetings putting forth the necessary talking points. By taking an active role in the policymaking process, participants are contributing to the success of the electrical contracting industry by sending Congress the message that NECA leads the industry in establishing and maintaining the highest workforce standards and performance. Join forces with other NECA members and staff working on the Association’s behalf in Washington.
Together, we can guide legislative change for our industry and the people we serve.
We encourage participants to take an active role in the policymaking process and participate in Capitol Hill visits. Constituent meetings with Members of Congress are critical to the success of NECA’s advocacy strategy on Capitol Hill. After all, NECA contractors are creating jobs, voting and paying taxes in a member’s district—they should hear first hand about your business and what matters to you!
NECA’s top legislative priorities for 2020 are aimed at optimizing the business climate in which NECA contractors operate. Advancing these important issues—refine federal tax policy, federal infrastructure investment and multiemployer pension reform—are crucial to the growth and prosperity of our industry. NECA staff will provide advocates with prepared position papers, talking points and preparatory meetings so participants are equipped to discuss these topics.
