The National Association of Tower Erectors (NATE) yesterday announced the key details associated with the inaugural NATE Member Congressional Fly-In Event in Washington, D.C. on May 14-15. The NATE Member Congressional Fly-In will be a time for representatives from NATE member companies across the country to converge in the Nation’s Capital to conduct meetings, assisted by the Association, with the congressional delegations and staff representing their respective states.
Additionally, all participating NATE members will receive an official copy of the NATE-branded 116th Congressional Directory and will be thoroughly briefed with a NATE Legislative and Regulatory Priorities Briefing Paper.
All of the Association’s congressional policy priorities are bi-partisan in nature.
“With over 855 member companies nationwide, NATE is excited to flex our grassroots muscle by hosting our organization’s first official member fly-in event in D.C. this spring,” said Executive Director Todd Schlekeway. “All politics is local and the fly-in event serves as a call to action for representatives from all NATE member companies to participate. Due to the extensive footprint of our membership, our companies can have a tremendous impact on their respective congressional delegations by virtue of where they are from and the prominent role their companies are playing in our vibrant industry,” added Schlekeway.
The NATE Member Congressional Fly-In will also be an opportunity to network with associates from many of the other wireless, broadcast and utility industry organizations that the Association collaborates with. NATE will be hosting several fun networking events in conjunction with the fly-in. All of these networking events are free to attend for NATE member fly-in participants.
NATE has secured a small room block at the Homewood Suites by Hilton Washington D.C. Capitol – Navy Yard.
