For the past 39 years, the Chamber has taken a delegation of business and civic leaders to Washington, D.C. to meet with key members of Congress, White House officials, cabinet members and military leaders. During this unpredictable political climate and challenging economic times, it is imperative for the businesses of San Antonio to be heard in Washington, D.C.
The focus of the trip during the first 20 years was to say thank you to Pentagon officials and members of Congress for their support of the military presence in San Antonio. However, in more recent years, the scope of the trip expanded. The San Antonio Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, the North San Antonio Chamber, and the Free Trade Alliance now partner with us to bring local issues into the national spotlight on Capitol Hill. These issues include education, aerospace, healthcare, energy, cybersecurity, manufacturing, water, transportation, international trade, immigration, hospitality/tourism and small business.
