As the leading voice of business in the Gregg County area the Longview Chamber doesn’t underestimate the importance of our value proposition as it relates to public policy. By partnering with our local government as well as business and community leaders we can lobby on behalf of a common agenda and exert powerful influence with state and national policymakers. Representing our members with elected officials is a critical role that the Chamber plays. That is why we go to Washington, DC to advocate on our members’ behalf.
While in DC attendees can expect to have access to Senators and Congressman. They will hear from some of the top lobbyist working on behalf of business and industry and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce will provide insight on key issues such as energy, healthcare, immigration, transportation, and more.
It is critical we work together to ensure Longview and East Texas remain attractive to those companies considering expansion or relocation to our area. Jobs and economic growth are what will help shape our region’s future and together we can make a difference.
The Longview Chamber of Commerce represents well over 1,100 members and 45,000 employees. The Longview Chamber of Commerce is a 5-Star Accredited Chamber with the U.S. Chamber and is recognized as one the top 1% of Chamber’s nationwide.
Activities begin at 9:30 am on Wednesday, May 11, and conclude late Thursday afternoon after Capitol Hill visits. Our group dinner is being planned for Thursday evening. Each participant is responsible for securing their own travel and hotel accommodations. However, reservations will be made for one evening group dinner. The other evening’s dinner is on your own. A registration fee of $375 will help defer the cost of prepared materials, lunch on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as the one scheduled group dinner. We recommend participants make hotel arrangements with the Courtyard Washington DC Marriott as soon as possible, 800.321.2211, but no later than April 7, 2016.
