The 2021 NUCA Washington Summits
As NUCA members, we must ensure that legislators understand the important role that our industry plays in keeping the country healthy, clean, and prosperous.
We want you to share your stories to persuade Congress that they must act to improve our nation’s underground infrastructure. Only you can deliver your personal expertise to your lawmaker's offices--they need to hear about your experiences. Those personal stories persuade lawmakers, especially when you are their constituent.
Washington Summit Highlights (Subject to Change):
- Capitol Hill Visits (Nov. 3) - Discuss What Matters to You with Your Senators and Representatives
- Federal Issues - Presentations from Washington Insiders and Experts.
- Discuss Indepth Our Industry's Top Four Issues: Water/Wastewater Infrastructure Investment, Surface Transportation Legislation, Broadband Deployment Policy, and Damage Prevention
- Legislative Briefing - An In-Depth Look at the Key NUCA Issues Before Congress
- More Advocacy Activities To Be Announced!
"Infrastructure has been a hot topic in Congress, but we cannot leave it up to our legislators—WE are the experts! Our active involvement in the process will help us push the best legislation forward with adequate funding. This is no small task. Join us this fall in Washington, D.C., to ensure our collective voice is heard."
--Tom Butler, Kimmons Contracting Corp.,
NUCA Government Relations Committee Chair
Many Kind Thanks to Our Generous NUCA National Partners
For Supporting the 2021 NUCA Washington Summits!
Infrastructure will be a top discussion in Congress throughout the year, and NUCA wants its members to be an important part of that conversation!
NUCA's 2021 Washington Summits
To build upon the success of the Spring 2021 virtual Washington Summit and because of the unique importance this year in Congress with infrastructure legislation, our association will hold a Fall NUCA Washington Summit Nov. 2-3, 2021, in Washington, D.C, on Capitol Hill. As a cost-saving measure, we are combining our Fall Washington Summit with our Chapter Success Conference (held Nov. 1), and our Fall Board of Directors meeting (held Nov. 2).
Fall Summit will begin late Tuesday, Nov. 2 with an evening welcome reception for overnight Summit attendees and NUCA National Partners.
In-office Congressional visits will begin Wednesday, Nov. 3. Our tentative schedule for that day will consist of an 8am opening breakfast at the hotel with key legislative speakers and a short issue briefing, followed by in-person meetings on the Hill from 10am to 4pm, with the day wrapping up at our Fall Summit Legislator Reception to be held 4pm-6pm.
The first 2021 Washington Summit was held Wednesday, May 26, 2021. The May 2021 Summit was a virtual experience like the Sept. 23, 2020 NUCA summit event because of the continuing closed office situation on Capitol Hill.
The May 2021 Summit held virtual educational sessions for members on these dates prior to the May 26th main event:
- May 5, 3:00pmET: First-Timers Session
- May 12, 3:00pmET: Preparing for Summit
- May 19, 3:00pmET: Congressional Briefing Session
The May 26 Summit day started at 9:00amET with a virtual introduction to the day's events, a discussion of current advocacy initiatives, and then led by Chapters, participated in 91 scheduled meetings with House and Senate lawmakers held via Webex, Zoom, MS Teams, and other online platforms.
We hope you will be part of our legislative advocacy programs throughout 2021.
