Capitol Visit Day

Tuesday, March 7, 2017
11:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m.

Join us in Austin for our day to represent the industry at the Texas State Capitol during the legislative session.

What is Capitol Visit Day?

Capitol Visit Day is a program most associations hold during the legislative session.  It is a FREE event and all we request is your presence.  It is very important that we get as many people as we can to attend in order to show the Texas legislature how important our industry is.  We do all the work for you once you sign up.  When you arrive in Austin we will give you a packet of information that details your specific legislatures, a bag of TMHA swag to give that particular office, and an informational sheet with what TMHA is currently working on that session.  We will send you in groups and our lobbyists will be present so you don’t have to walk into offices alone if you are more on the shy side.   You are more than welcome to attend the welcome reception, lunch and Capitol visits or just do your visits if you are tight on time!  Anything is recognized and helps the industry.

CAPITOL VISIT DAY

Free Event

We will have shuttles running every 30 minutes from the AT&T Conference Center to the Capitol.  Day parking is available at the AT&T Conference Center and there is little to no parking at the Capitol so we highly recommend taking the shuttles. 

We will have a meeting room in the Capitol Extension reserved for TMHA until 5 p.m.  If you are unable to make the lunch presentation you may meet us in this room starting at 1 p.m. and we will give you instructions and your appointment packets.

The dress for Capitol Visit Day is business casual and you are encouraged to wear any items with your company logo or the TMHA lapel pin we give you upon arrival.

Capitol Visit Day Registration

Registration is free and open to anyone.  Everyone must register individually even if you are attending with someone (Caitlin will ensure you go to your appointments together).  We need your home address so we can make your appointment with your representative as you vote based on this address.  If there is a representative you would like to visit with you may send me an email and I will set up an appointment with that office as well.   If you have to cancel please email caitlin@texasmha.com to do so.    

Online registration will be opening soon and we will send out information once it opens.

We will be sending out information on our rooming block once we get closer to the event.  We have a block of rooms at the AT&T Conference Center for $219/night from 3/6/17-3/8/17 under the group name TMHA.
