OneVoice Washington D.C. Fly-In
The Tulsa Regional Chamber's signature federal advocacy trip, the OneVoice Washington D.C. Fly-In, is crucial for the success of the OneVoice agenda's federal legislative priorities.
This three-day event offers business executives and regional leaders a direct connection to Oklahoma's federal delegation, as well as valuable insights from some of the nation's top policy experts. This is best opportunity of the year to speak directly with senators and representatives about the priorities most important to northeast Oklahoma.
Text "DCFLYIN" to 80802 to sign up for group texts with schedule updates and changes during the trip.
One highlight of the trip will be a Wednesday night group dinner at President Lincoln's Cottage. The cottage was the family retreat for President Abraham Lincoln and his family during his presidency. While in residence at the cottage, Lincoln visited with wounded soldiers; spent time with self-emancipated men, women and children; and developed the Emancipation Proclamation.
The Library of Congress will open its Member's Room for a Chamber lunch with U.S. Congressman Kevin Hern. Last year, U.S. Sen. James Lankford joined attendees in the historic space. Traditionally, the room is reserved only for members of Congress.
Programming details are tentative and subject to change. Text "dcflyin" to 80802 to receive group text alerts during the trip.
