The Washington DC Fly-In offers the Chamber’s Chairmans Club members the opportunity to meet as a group with our elected officials and is held in conjunction with the Georgia Chamber’s Fly-In. During the 48-hour trip, attendees meet with U.S. Senators and Congressman as well as U.S. Chamber representatives to discuss recent updates on fiscal, transportation, small business and healthcare policy.
The Douglas County Chamber spearheaded a group of 18 community leaders who met with US Senators and Congressional leaders in Washington D.C. on September 25th – 27th to discuss topics important to our thriving community. While in D.C., delegates also participated in the Georgia Chamber Fly-In with other chambers across the state. This was the largest delegation to attend the annual D.C. Fly-In to date, and the Douglas County Chamber was more effectively able represent the interests of our community with this diverse group.
Meetings were held with Congressman David Scott as well as U.S. Senators Johnny Isakson and David Perdue.
The Washington D.C. Fly-In offers a collaborative way for government, education and business leaders in our community to meet congressional leaders as a collective voice. During the fast paced, two-day trip, attendees also participated in economic updates with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Georgia Chamber’s Congressional and Staff Appreciation Reception where more than 300 leaders attended.
