Call on Washington

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

The Call on Washington is one of TCA’s most important efforts to increase truckload’s visibility with our legislators and regulators in Washington. There is no better way to advance these efforts than to attend the 2019 event, which will provide members with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with policymakers and their staff and tell truckload’s unique story. Attendees will also receive updates from key Congressmen and Senators who are leaders of transportation-focused committees and from expert Hill committee staff. Through these discussions, TCA members will learn what the future holds for trucking legislation, particularly potential congressional movement on infrastructure proposals.

Please register on or before September 3, 2019 in order to guarantee a personalized schedule. Schedules for registrations received after September 3, 2019 may be subject to representative and time availability.
