Capitol-to-Capitol 2022

Dear champions of the Greater Sacramento Region,

For 50 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 – nearly 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, your voice is needed as we proudly return to Washington DC in 2022.

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 post-pandemic business transformation and reimagined workforce development to wildfire prevention, water management, and housing – we are compelled 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 as our delegation resumes the 50th Annual Metro Chamber Capitol-to-Capitol Program. We hope you will join us in celebrating the accomplishments of the past 50 years and building momentum to advance our regional goals over the next 50 years.

Kierstan DeLong

What is Cap-to-Cap?
Every year, the Sacramento Metro Chamber organizes a delegation of hundreds of area officials and business leaders to travel to Washington, D.C., and meet with federal representatives. The Capitol-to-Capitol program is meant to secure funding and resources for high-priority projects in the region and raise local concerns to officials at the national level. This year’s delegation will meet virtually with our national leaders but network locally, October 25-29, 2021.

What do attendees hope to gain by participating in Cap-to-Cap?
In 2018, then Mayor Christopher Cabaldon (West Sacramento) attended Cap-to-Cap. When reflecting on why he attended, he said “to secure funding for the Downtown Riverfront Streetcar project, which has been a significant regional priority and is partially in my own city.” Former Mayor Cabaldon left Cap-to-Cap with a victory, stating “As we left D.C., we got the support of Congress to move forward with the project and secured $50 to $100 million in funding for the project. Part of our objective was to make sure that Small Starts Grant agreement signed with the federal government.”

How has the Greater Sacramento Region benefited from Cap-to-Cap?
Cap-to-Cap helps provide a tremendous financial boost and investment to the Capital Region. And this funding — some of it to support workforce development— impacts all of our communities. The delegation has had an impact on resources around water/flood management/wildfire recovery, and so much more. As City Councilmember Rick Jennings, and former Oakland Raider, once said, “Cap-to-Cap is our Super Bowl.”
