A unified voice is the best way to be heard.

In April, the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce will again lead a delegation of business, government and labor leaders to Washington D.C. to advocate for San Francisco’s key priorities. CityTrip D.C. is recognized as one of the Bay Area’s leading legislative trips to the nation’s capital featuring small group advocacy meetings, senior level briefings and exclusive special events.

The new administration in D.C. will likely introduce a change of policy and funding priorities across the country. It is essential that local business and civic leaders connect with key federal lawmakers and agency officials to discuss potential impacts to the City and the Bay Area.

We hope you will join us in Washington D.C. as a member of this important delegation!
