2015 IWLA Legislative Fly-in Lights Up Our Issues in Washington

The semiannual IWLA Legislative Fly-in is the only place where members have direct contact with the lawmakers and regulators who affect the warehouse logistics industry. The April 28 & 29 event in Washington, D.C., highlights include:

  • Transportation outlook, specifically the latest developments of the Highway Trust Fund. Member of the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Jim Renacci (R-Ohio) will discuss funding options to the group.
  • A labor update outline the latest developments of the U.S. National Labor Relations Board’s “ambush elections” ruling including the Houses’ congressional review act passed last week.
  • A review of the United States Postal Service’s proposal to enter 3PL warehousing industry including the pilot program in Chicago.
  • U.S. Representative Luke Messer (R-Ind.) will address the group.

Not only is this another great networking opportunity among IWLA members but it’s also an opportunity to arrange congressional visits with his/her elected officials. These guided member visits will include talking points and leave-behinds with the most important issues affecting IWLA. Please register now and arrange your stay at the Omni Shoreham Hotel by calling 202.234.0700.
