2016 DC Visit

A main priority for the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is our year-round legislative advocacy efforts. Join fellow community leaders in a two-day visit to Washington, D.C., April 27-28, 2016.

This annual event includes personal briefings with Oklahoma’s U.S. senators and congressmen and a reception on Capitol Hill with federal officials and defense leaders. On the second day, sessions will cover specific areas of interest on issues critical to our community including a military defense briefing. Attendees will learn more about legislation that impacts local business and have an opportunity to personally speak with our Oklahoma congressional delegation.

$800 registration fee includes one night’s lodging at The Henley Park Hotel and all affiliated events. Air travel to and from Washington, D.C. is not included, giving attendees the option to extend their stay for additional business in the area. Additional room nights are available.

“We all know how important Tinker is to Central Oklahoma. Our time in Washington with both our Congressional delegation and Pentagon representatives is vital to understanding the issues and needs surrounding the base.”
David E. Rainbolt, CEO, BancFirst Corporation
Chairman, Greater Oklahoma City Chamber
