Capitol-to-Capitol

NOTE FROM THE 2020 CHAIRS

Dear champions of the Sacramento Region,

For 49 years, we’ve answered the call.

Leaders, experts and emerging influencers from across the six-county Capital Region have come together in our Nation’s Capital—every year since 1970—lending a bold and resounding voice for local issues.

Representing the largest and longest-standing delegation of its kind, the Metro Chamber’s
Capitol-to-Capitol program has driven steady and consistent advocacy, ushering significant advances for business development, an inclusive economy and a vibrant and connected
community.

Now more than ever, our voices are needed in Washington, D.C.

As concerned citizens and accountable leaders, we have the honor of representing a large and diverse region that is rich in opportunity and at the tipping point of economic expansion. But there is important work that must be done to pave the way for greater prosperity.

From wildfire prevention and new emergency evacuation routes, to water management,
flood protection, support for education and solutions to homelessness—we are compelled by our first-hand experience, and ultimate duty, to carry these critical issues forward to policy makers and federal agencies that can, in turn, help us fulfill our mission—FOR BUSINESS.

Your voice is needed this spring in the nearly 400-strong chorus of the 50th Annual
Metro Chamber Capitol-to-Capitol program. We hope you will answer the call and join us as we celebrate the many victories of the past 49 years and continue to foster relationships and galvanize plans that bring increased momentum and abundance for our region for the next 50 years.
