The TWU International invites all local representatives to promote, advance, and defend our union’s goals before decision-makers in Washington, DC at the Legislative and COPE Conference May 12 – May 15, 2024.
Registration is now open!
TWU leaders from around the country will come together to share best practices, empower one another, and make policy change in our nation’s capital. The conference will be based at Hilton Washington DC Capitol Hill (525 New Jersey Ave NW, Washington, DC 20001) in Washington, DC, and include several trips to the House of Representatives and the Senate.
Scheduling meetings: To save you time, resources, and energy, the International has engaged a firm to schedule all of our meetings with congressional offices. This will make it easier for participants to meet directly with elected officials and maximize the effectiveness of our meetings. Please fill out the form here (this is the same form we use to create your name badge): https://forms.office.com/r/5YGHjZKWLa. We ask that locals not schedule their own meetings, as it may interfere with the process.
Hotel: Hilton Washington DC Capitol Hill. This hotel is within walking distance to the hill. The closest Metro stop is Judiciary Square on the redline. We encourage participants to fly into National Airport (DCA). The hotel link is: https://book.passkey.com/gt/219568298?gtid=663468b089aa909e97f1797a07acd443. You have until April 1.
For now, please mark your calendars and make plans to come to DC in May. If you have any questions, please contact Heather Laverty at email@example.com.
