 2018 Legislative Conference



The 2018 Legislative Conference is scheduled for March 18-20, at the Grand Hyatt, 1000 H Street NW, Washington, DC 20001. 

About this Conference

The Legislative Conference educates members on important federal legislation and policy initiatives; provides members with the opportunity to shape future industry positions and federal transportation policy; provides direction on the industry’s legislative strategy and advocacy efforts with the U.S. Congress and executive branch; and offers sessions with key members of Congress, Administration officials, staffers and Washington opinion makers.
 
During the 2017 meeting, APTA members visited hundreds of Congressional offices to advocate for fully funding federal public transportation programs authorized in the Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, addressing the long-term solvency of the Highway Trust Fund in tax reform legislation, and fulfilling campaign promises for a new infrastructure initiative. These issues remain at the forefront of the legislative agenda, and with only a year left until the 2018 mid-term Congressional elections, now is the time to make our voices heard in Washington and push our priorities over the finish line.
 
Previous speakers from the Executive Branch have included Secretaries of the Department of Transportation and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) Administrators. Key Congressional leaders have also participated in previous conferences, including Senate Banking Committee Ranking Democrat Senator Sherrod Brown, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Ranking Member Rep. Peter DeFazio, House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit Chairman Rep. Sam Graves, Senator Dean Heller, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, Rep. John Delaney, Rep. Hank Johnson, Rep. Seth Moulton, and senior Congressional staff.
 
Who should attend: CEOs, board members, government affairs and communications professionals, transit operators, consultants, manufacturers and suppliers, local coalition members, and state association leaders.
