FIA's 17th ANNUAL LOBBY DAY

 

Make plans to join your forging peers at FIA’s 17th Annual Lobby Day on February 25-26, 2020.  Lobby Day provides an opportunity for you to discuss key industry issues that directly impact your business with your congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. Key topics for discussion include fair trade, workforce development and infrastructure. With an upcoming election on the horizon, it is even more important to remind lawmakers of the key issues that impact the forging industry.

FIA’s lobby firm, Mehlman Castagnetti Rosen & Thomas, will be organizing meetings with key members of the U.S. House and Senate along with leading Lobby Day attendees to visits on Capitol Hill. This partnership allows FIA to expand its’ reach on Capitol Hill immensely.
