This annual event, which is an exclusive member benefit, takes place April 18-19 in Washington, D.C. Members will have the opportunity to deliver roadway safety solutions to the Capitol Hill offices of lawmakers and their staffs, who craft policy that affects the roadway safety infrastructure industry for years to come. This year, both House and Senate office buildings are fully open to visitors. “We look forward to having ease of access to Capitol Hill offices this year,” said ATSSA Vice President of Engagement Nate Smith. “Our team works diligently to set up multiple meetings with legislators for every person attending this important advocacy event. We recognize the importance of face-to-face advocacy with legislators and have seen the benefits for our members and the industry.” This year’s Legislative Briefing & Fly-In coincides with National Work Zone Awareness Week (NWZAW), which will be held April 17-21 and has the theme, “You play a role in work zone safety. Work With Us.” ATSSA members will have the opportunity to raise awareness of work zone safety while encouraging legislators to work with us to develop lifesaving policy for the nation’s roadways.
