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. 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 April 2 to 3 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 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/CEO Stacy Tetschner.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with fellow industry members from major associations and organizations from around the country 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.
