Chamber advocacy team hosts another successful DC Fly-In trip

5 Things, Advocacy, Programs,

The 2023 DC Fly-In is in the books! This year we brought along even more members, city officials, and business owners, packing in nearly a dozen meetings with high-powered individuals and agencies. 

"It’s a privilege for the business community to be joined by top officials from the City of Bellevue as we engage our federal delegation with one voice," said Bellevue Chamber President & CEO, Joe Fain. "Whether it’s advocating for important infrastructure projects like 405 and the Grand Connection, or lending business community support to federal grants, the partnership between the City and Chamber continues to grow."

"We are also lucky to be represented by a pragmatic and effective delegation in Washington, DC; not just in the city of Bellevue but across our state," he said. "No matter what party is in power Washington’s delegation is regularly at the table and contributing to the big issues that shape our region and nation."
