"It's really great to get face time with our congressman and senators, and it's important that we come to Washington
and voice our opinions. It's also a great networking opportunity, not only to meet with our representatives, but to
discuss ideas and issues with industry colleagues."
Taylor Douglas, Douglas Companies
"The most important aspect of this event is that it lets the different politicians within our states and districts understand
what's important to our businesses. As distributors, we need to come here and represent the states that we operate in."
Kevin Barney, Atlantic Dominion Distributors
“It’s truly been a fabulous event. I’ve met a lot of staffers for our Pennsylvania Senators and it’s gone really well.
The feeling is that it’s intimidating to speak to a legislator, but I’ve learned that it’s really not—it’s what you need to do, especially in our industry.”
Jeff Allen, Allen Brothers Wholesale Distributors, Inc.
