Legislative Conference June 18-19, 2019

Legislative Conference June 18-19, 2019

On June 18-19, 2019, TCIA members will travel to Washington, D.C. for our biennial Legislative Conference and Day on the Hill.

Tree care professionals from all over the country will spend an afternoon in briefings to prepare for the following day on the Hill. Members will join with a delegation of experienced Washington hands for visits with their representatives to discuss key industry issues. You will visit with legislators and their staffers, and the staffers of policy committees, to offer your perspective on tree care related issues.

Topics will include OSHA, labor policy, immigration issues, regulations, and forestry policy.

Through grassroots efforts in the states and through direct action by TCIA’s lobbyists, staff and members, your industry’s trade association works to promote the interests of commercial and utility arboriculture. We lobby for two primary reasons:
1) to protect and expand your markets
2) to reduce your cost of doing business
