2015 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 15-16, 2015.

This annual event includes personal briefings with Oklahoma'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. Attendees will learn more about legislation that impacts local business and have an opportunity to personally speak with our Oklahoma Congressional Delegation.

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.

“I have attended the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber DC Visit for several years and found it to be a valuable trip. In addition to learning a great deal about congressional priorities and how Oklahoma’s issues relate, it is very important for our national leaders to meet face to face with leaders in Oklahoma City to help them know and understand what is most critical for us.”
Mary Mélon, CEO and President, The Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools
“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, vice chair, government relations, Greater Oklahoma City Chamber
