2018 DC Visit

Decisions made at our nation’s capital have a significant impact on our businesses and our community. From regulation and infrastructure development to investments in our nation’s defense, Oklahoma City – and our companies – feel the consequences of choices made there.

Join fellow community leaders in a two-day visit to Washington, D.C., April 25-26, 2018.

This annual event includes 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 hear directly from our Oklahoma congressional delegation.

$800 registration fee includes one night’s hotel stay at The Dupont Circle 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 for Tuesday, April 24 and Thursday, April 26.
