Members of the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) will visit members of Congress and their key legislative staff during the association’s Capitol Hill Advocacy Day, scheduled for June 13 during Committee Week.
“Advocacy Day is one of the highlights of Committee Week for attendees and a vitally important element in RVIA’s efforts to increase awareness of the industry and our issues at the federal level,” Matt Wald, RVIA’s director of government affairs, stated in a news release. “These visits and meetings help strengthen relationships between RVIA members and the members of Congress who represent their states and districts.”
RVIA Government Affairs staff schedule appointments with elected officials, provide briefing materials and accompany members on visits. The program also gives participants the opportunity to have photos taken with Congressmen and Senators.
Advocacy Day begins with a morning meeting during which RVIA members are briefed on the issues they will be discussing with Congressional members and their staff. The briefing includes rehearsal exercises that help RVIA members practice discussing key issues before they set out to meet elected officials.
