Capitol Visit Day

Tuesday, March 3, 2015
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
Appointments will be scheduled from 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Free Event

We will have shuttles running every 30 minutes from the Embassy Suites Downtown to the Capitol.  The parking is free at the Embassy Suites and there is little to no parking at the Capitol so we highly recommend taking the shuttles. 

We 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 and we will give you instructions and your appointment packets.
