Join local leaders on a two-day visit to Washington, D.C.

A main priority for the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber is our year-round legislative advocacy efforts. Join us on a two-day trip to Washington, D.C., Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 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 military leaders. On the second day, sessions will cover specific topics 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.
