ADVOCACY

As the leading voice for business in the Capital Region since 1895,
we advocate at the local, state and federal level for the environment that business needs to succeed.

ANNUAL ADVOCACY PROGRAM

Each year, the Metro Chamber organizes advocacy programs that focus directly on improving the business and economic climate and the livelihood of the Capital Region.

The Capitol-to-Capitol (Cap-to-Cap) program originated 50 years ago and has since brought participants from all six-counties to Washington, D.C. to meet with our federal representatives in Congress and Administration and agency officials on regional topics that improve our economic livelihood.

The region’s longest-standing federal advocacy program returns once again this spring — April 25-29, 2020. The Metro Chamber will lead a delegation of nearly 400 business leaders, elected officials, and community champions to Washington, D.C. for the 50th annual Capitol-to-Capitol – the largest chamber-led advocacy travel program of its kind in the nation.

This year’s program will continue the strong tradition of advocating for critical resources and support for the Capital Region, as well as recognizing the accomplishments of 50 years of federal advocacy. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet with your elected officials about the issues and ideas you and your business care about.
