(May 21, 2020) – Our annual Washington, DC fly-in will look a little bit different this year. Due to the ongoing stay-at-home orders in effect throughout the city, we elected to cancel the 2020 Washington, DC Fly-In.
BUT, that doesn’t mean our advocacy efforts are on pause! We’re proud to host the first virtual Cattlemen’s Washington, DC Fly-In this upcoming June.
How does it work?
- Complete this form. Attendees will be sorted by official USCA regions. USCA will coordinate scheduling meetings with Congressional staff based on each attendee’s listed place of residence.
- Attend the pre-meeting prep call. We will make sure all participants are able to get on video, discuss our priority issues, and review meeting protocol.
- Meeting information will be issued via email. This includes the meeting date and time, directions for joining the video conference, and how to conduct a policy meeting on-camera (𝒊𝒏𝒅𝒊𝒗𝒊𝒅𝒖𝒂𝒍 𝒎𝒆𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒂𝒕𝒆𝒔 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒗𝒂𝒓𝒚 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝑪𝒐𝒏𝒈𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒔𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒂𝒍 𝒔𝒄𝒉𝒆𝒅𝒖𝒍𝒆𝒔, 𝒚𝒐𝒖 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 𝒓𝒆𝒄𝒆𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒂𝒎𝒑𝒍𝒆 𝒏𝒐𝒕𝒊𝒄𝒆 𝒐𝒇 𝒎𝒆𝒆𝒕𝒊𝒏𝒈 𝒅𝒂𝒕𝒆 𝒂𝒏𝒅 𝒕𝒊𝒎𝒆). We will also include in that email an overview of our priority issues. Our goal is to make participation as easy as possible!
- On your meeting date and time, join the video conference. Each meeting will be led by the Board Representative for your region, with the opportunity to ask questions and interact with Congressional staff in real-time.
For those who have not had the opportunity to travel with us to Washington, DC, this is a great opportunity to ‘get your feet wet’ in the policymaking process. No previous policy experience is needed, just the willingness to learn the issues. Must be a USCA member to attend (but joining is quick & easy, click HERE!)
