There’s a new Congress in town, and that means there are a lot of members who haven’t heard the wind story yet. Now it’s our job to educate them, and we need your help.
No one can help us tell this story better than the men and women working in American wind power every day. We need your help explaining how affordable and reliable wind is; how wind energy creates jobs and is a powerful rural economic development tool; and how wind makes the air cleaner, building a better tomorrow for future generations.
On March 5-6, AWEA will hold Wind Power on Capitol Hill, the year’s biggest opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. and meet your representatives in the House and Senate.
During this two-day event you’ll be able to:
- Participate in an advocacy boot camp, where you’ll learn from the pros the most effective techniques for conducting meetings on the Hill;
- Put that training to work in face-to-face meetings with your elected officials and their staffs, and build long-lasting relationships with your elected officials;
- Understand how federal and state policies affect the future of U.S. wind development;
- Network with your colleagues in the industry and congressional staff at a reception on Capitol Hill, and become empowered to make this event the springboard for your continued advocacy efforts.
Coming to Washington and telling your story can play a critical role in making sure we continue adding chapters to wind power’s American success story.
Please join us, and please consider inviting members of your supply chain, leaseholders, community members, and your family – we need their voices, too!
