Washington, DC – The United Motorcoach Association (UMA) will host hundreds of individual representatives from a variety of the bus and motorcoach industry groups as it plans the largest industry legislative fly-in event of its kind. These industry representatives will join together with the common goal of meeting with members of Congress to discuss issues critical to the overall protection of the industry.
The event will take place on April 2nd and 3rd in Washington D.C. with the goal for operators to meet face-to-face with as many of their congressional representatives as possible. By the end of these meetings, UMA’s goal is to have educated these legislators about the value of the bus and motorcoach industry, its concerns and envisioned solutions.
“I am pleased with the growing energy and collaboration transpiring between a wide variety of industry leaders who will be coming together with a single agenda for this important event. We are excited to expand the invitation list this year to include all industry leaders, both regional and national to unite and provide input for this year’s legislative agenda,” said UMA President and CEO Stacy Tetschner.
The hotel room block has been secured for this event and attendees can go to www.uma.org/capitol-hill to book rooms.
Attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow industry members from major associations and organizations from around the country in order to create a unified vision that will be communicated with their elected leaders. Expected participants in this year’s legislative fly-in are active leaders, owners, operators from within the bus and motorcoach industry and the many organizations that make it up.
“Bus and motorcoach operators at last year’s event exhibited unparalleled passion and commitment to sharing their personal experiences with members of Congress who in turn, were very interested in hearing from them as constituents, business owners and employers from the community they have been elected to represent. With the amount of high-level interest in our event thus far, I believe participation will surpass any previous year,” said UMA President and CEO Stacy Tetschner.
The United Motorcoach Association is the nation’s largest organization exclusively protecting and promoting the interests and welfare of privately-owned bus and motorcoach companies.
