Make your voice heard: Wind Power on Capitol Hill 2017

A new president and a new Congress are coming to town in the New Year and we need you to help brief the new decision makers on all the ways wind energy works for America.

On February 15 & 16, 2017, AWEA will hold its annual Wind Power on Capitol Hill event, the year’s biggest opportunity to visit Washington and meet your representatives in Congress.

During this two-day event you’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in an advocacy boot camp where you’ll learn from the pros the most effective techniques for conducting meetings on the Hill, and fostering long-lasting relationships with your elected officials.
  • Put that training to work in face-to-face meetings with your elected officials and their staff.
  • 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.

Are you with us?

Your participation in Wind Power on Capitol Hill can make a huge difference in gaining support in Congress to keep American wind power growing.
