ASTA Legislative Day
To be heard, you have to have a seat at the table.
Together, we will make our voices heard in the halls of Congress.
Monday, March 14 - Tuesday, March 15, 2016
HUGE SUCCESS. Thank you to the ASTA members who gave their time to make this event so successful.
As spring begins in Washington D.C., ASTA SVP Eben Peck leads a delegation of travel professionals into the Halls of Congress
At this exclusive event, open to ASTA members only, you will converge on Capitol Hill to speak directly to lawmakers about issues that impact travel agents and the broader travel and tourism industry.
ASTA strives to educate the traveling public about the value travel professionals provide and it is critical that we do the same with elected representatives on Capitol Hill. ASTA headquarters can't do this work alone—we need your help.
Your voice matters! According to a recent study by the Congressional Management Foundation, nothing makes a bigger impression on lawmakers than a visit from constituents.
Going unrepresented in Congress invites disaster at a time when legislators are considering issues that will have a direct impact on your business and work life—from airline ancillary fees and other distribution issues to selling Cuba and new regulations on independent contractors. There is an old saying in Washington—"if you're not at the table, you're on the menu." Attending Legislative Day is a great way to make sure we are at the table!
