About the Conference

Last year’s inaugural DC Fly-in was a huge success. Don’t miss your chance to join Business Council president Heather Briccetti, vice president Ken Pokalsky and fellow members for a day of meetings with New York’s Congressional delegation and policy experts from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Attendees are welcome to fly-in early on the 16th and meet with their own representatives (please note: The Business Council will not be scheduling these meetings for attendees). We will be hosting a welcome reception that evening in DC (more information to follow).
