Each and every day in your nation's capital, there are visitors from all over the country and all over the world. Many are here to take in a few of our national treasures such as the Smithsonian museums, art galleries, the White House, or the monuments. There is literally something in Washington for everyone.

If all this makes you energized about taking a trip to D.C., your friends at NLBMDA would like to offer you an experience like none other—a visit with your senator or representative. These are the very people who make decisions that impact your company and our industry on a daily basis. When visiting the nation's capital, your helpful NLBMDA staff will arrange a meeting with your representative to talk about issues important to you, your community, and your industry. We only ask for a little warning of your arrival. It is our pleasure to arrange for your “capital” visit and provide assistance with talking points for your meeting with your member of Congress.

The invitation is always open, just note that during times of heavy campaigning your representatives may be at home visiting their constituents. Call us at 800.634.8645 and let us know when you are coming to town!
