Immediately following tomorrow's luncheon, the board chair, Carol Longacre, and I will head to the airport to depart for the DC Fly In in Washington, D.C. The trip, which takes place every other year, is a unique opportunity for the Chamber to engage with our elected officials and tell them what is important to the business community.
In 2014, we had the opportunity to meet with U.S. Representative Paul Ryan and former Speaker of the House, John Boehner. We were privileged to have candid conversations about the state of affairs at the national level. We also met with Senators Ted Cruz and John Cornyn. Special thanks to Congressman Michael Burgess for leading the effort to secure these meetings.
I look forward to meeting with our elected officials and other government entities this year to share the successes and needs of our business community. I encourage each of you to become more active by participating in our government affairs meetings every other month. Our next meeting is Thursday, May 12 at 1:00 p.m. at the Chamber Office.
