For decades, San Antonio business, military, and community leaders have traveled to Washington, D.C., to promote and drive important initiatives that benefit San Antonio's business community and ensure the city remains the best place to live, work, and play. We invite you to be a part of this community tradition and join us for our 43rd annual SA to DC trip scheduled for October 19 - 22, 2021.
This year's SA to DC trip will be under the leadership of Ashley Harris, Director of Government Relations with USAA. Together with our partners, we will lead a delegation of leaders to our nation's capital for three days of advocacy covering infrastructure, public, and higher education, access and affordability of healthcare, as well as sustaining and growing our military missions.
In 2020, before the pandemic, we were fortunate enough to host our most attended fly-in to date with more than 220 participants who successfully assisted with achieving the following wins for San Antonio:
Passage of the United Stated-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA);
