On Sunday and Monday, more than 175 business and community leaders will head to Washington D.C. for the annual SA to DC trip. While in Washington, the group will meet with members of Congress and government officials about business, industry, military, education and community development priorities for our region.
“SA to DC began in the late 1970s, when seven members of the Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee traveled to the Pentagon to offer our thanks and support for the various Department of Defense (DOD) missions located in San Antonio,” said Richard Perez, President & CEO of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce. “While the focus on our military missions remains a key objective during the trip, it has also expanded to include a comprehensive federal agenda of priorities.”
The San Antonio Chamber’s Board of Directors reviewed and unanimously approved the 2019 Federal Agenda on December 5, 2018. The Federal Agenda serves as the Chamber’s guide for the trip and outlines specific requests from our largest industries including health care, manufacturing, tourism, energy, cybersecurity and aerospace.
