Converge on the Capitol
February 16 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Converge on the Capitol is a vital opportunity for you and your colleagues to participate in the legislative process. Your visits with your legislative leaders and their staff lets them see the faces and hear the priorities of the tourism and lodging industry operators firsthand – a critical component in our ability to be successful at the Capitol.
We will be hard at work on issues of top importance to the lodging industry, such as full funding for tourism promotion, ensuring local hotel tax revenue remains dedicated for tourism-related purposes, support for the major events reimbursement program and events trust fund, ensuring no burdensome regulations are enacted that would affect hotels, and more.
