2019 DC Visit

Join fellow business leaders on a two-day trip to Washington, D.C., Wednesday, May 1 and Thursday, May 2, to advocate for pro-business legislation.

Each year the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber strives to plan a visit to D.C. that aligns with our members’ needs and the goals of our organization. This year's trip on May 1 and 2 will provide opportunities for members to interact one-on-one with other attendees, with members of the Oklahoma Congressional delegation and defense leaders.


Members of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber experience a day on Capitol Hill at the 2018 DC Visit.

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.
