ABA sets date for first Capitol Hill Fly-In

Posted on May 2, 2016

The American Bus Association (ABA) will hold its first Capitol Hill Fly-In May 4 to provide ABA members an opportunity to meet with their elected legislative officials and staff and discuss the important issues facing the motorcoach, travel and tourism industries today.

"The Fly-In, held during National Travel and Tourism Week, presents a key opportunity for ABA members to meet personally with their elected representatives and staff about their businesses, providing a chance to explain the impact our industries have on local and national economies,” said ABA President/CEO Peter J. Pantuso. “As Congress considers legislation that may influence how their business will be regulated, it's critical our members' voices be heard.”

ABA has been assisting its membership in coordinating pre-arranged appointments with their legislators and staff, and more than 150 meetings are scheduled for the day. The event will take place in tandem with ABA's spring 2016 Board of Directors meeting.

The Fly-In will kick-off with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton addressing ABA members during a morning briefing session. Then, following an afternoon of meetings with officials, it will conclude with an evening reception at ABA headquarters. The following morning, Amy Walter, national editor of the Cook Political Report and former political director of ABC News, will share her insights on the national political scene with Fly-In participants.
