Capitol Hill Day 2018

 
2018 Capitol Hill Day
Thursday, April 26, 2018


Plan to participate in this acclaimed event as FBA leaders from across the country meet with House and Senate offices to discuss important FBA legislative issues that impact the administration of justice and the federal courts. During meetings on Capitol Hill, FBA participants will discuss issues most critical to our Third Branch of government, including: adequate funding for the federal courts, filling judicial vacancies promptly, and sufficient judgeships to render justice.

FBA Capitol Hill Day is becoming more popular each year. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to help broaden the FBA’s visibility and influence in Congress.

Training and materials will be provided to Capitol Hill Day participants in advance of the event to provide issues understanding and advocacy effectiveness on the Hill. Participants also are responsible for scheduling their meetings with their Senate and House offices.

Between meetings, participants will have the opportunity to visit the Senate and House galleries, as well as the Capitol Visitors Center.

Capitol Hill Day is held in conjunction with the 2018 Leadership Training Program (April 27-28, 2018). All chapters, sections, and divisions are encouraged to send a representative to this event. Because reimbursement is available for chapter representative attendees of the Leadership Training Program, these attendees will only need to incur the cost of one additional night of lodging.

Chapters are encouraged to reimburse the cost of an extra hotel night stay. Section and Division representatives should follow National Policy No. 9-5 guidelines regarding reimbursement and receive approval from the Chair and Treasurer of their Section/Division.
