You will be busy from 8:00am to 5:00pm on Feb 8th and hence if you could arrive a day earlier in the evening and board a flight after 7:00pm on Feb 8th it would be most effective.
Washington D.C. has 3 close airports. DCA, IAD and BWI with DCA being the closest and most convenient during peak hour traffic. All airports are connected by local trains from the capital (Union Station).
Please stay as close to Capitol as possible. Peak hour traffic in D.C. can be a nightmare and 10-mile commute could take more 2 hours. If you are close enough, walking from your hotel to Capitol would be most convenient than Uber, train or self-driving.
Expect to attend few meetings with your local Congress Members and/or Senators. If we get good strength, we will get media to cover the event as well. The full agenda will be published by end of January.
We highly recommend you bring your family including kids. If kids are 5 and above they can attend the meeting with congress members as well. Kids below 5 may not feel comfortable to stay for 20-30 meeting.
We’ll conduct few online training sessions to help you prepare. Watch out for those around end of Jan.
Dress in business formal attire only. (suit + tie + formal shoe).
We’ll be connecting everyone on social media platforms. You’ll also have optional meet and greet session on evening of Feb 7th
Passionate and dedicated SIIA volunteers will help you get most of the appointments. Sometimes congressional offices entertain only constituents and in those scenarios, we’ll guide to get appointments.
We’ll share those details by early Feb. More details to be added soon.
