United States Capitol


For 40 years, the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce has led local leaders to Washington, DC to advocate on federal issues that are pertinent to our community.  We have partnered with the Free Trade Alliance, the North San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, the San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the South San Antonio Chamber of Commerce,  and we are proud to announce an official partnership with the San Antonio Mobility Coalition INC. for our 2018 trip to the Capitol.

The 2018 delegation will be led by President and CEO of Brooks Leo Gomez, who will serve as the Chair of our trip. We invite you to join more than 100 other San Antonians January 29, 2018 through February 1, 2018 for the 40th annual SA to DC.

What began as a visit to the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol focused on thanking our leaders for the strong military presence in San Antonio, SA to DC has expanded to include many issues important to our community. In 2017, more than 120 business and community leaders met with national policy-makers and political leaders to discuss issues such as energy, transportation, education, trade, and more.

Because 2018 is San Antonio’s 300th anniversary, we will have a unique opportunity to engage with political leaders and share the stories that have made our city an outstanding destination and an exciting place to live, with a strong, active, and thriving business community. Your involvement is key to the success of our advocacy efforts.

New for 2018, payment must be made online and received by Friday, December 29, 2017.

To begin registration, click the REGISTER button below which will take you to the payment portal.  Once you have paid,  you will receive an email with your payment confirmation and a link to fill out additional required registration information.
