On Wednesday, July 11 - during the ISRI Board & Committee Meetings - ISRI will be holding its annual Congressional Summer Fly-In. ISRI is asking everyone to register for the Fly-In when you register for the board meetings.
The major focus will be trade, especially the difficulties surrounding China. ISRI’s ask from Congress is to continue to contact the Administration
to make it aware that exports of scrap commodities are vitally important to the nation’s economy, the protection of the environment, jobs in every Congressional district, and the conservation of precious natural resources.
Part of the programming will include a breakfast at the Capitol Hill Club beginning at 7:30 a.m. on the day of the Fly-In. There, we will hear from U.S. Representative George Holding (R-NC), who sits on the powerful House Ways & Means Committee which has jurisdiction over trade and tax-related matters. Rep. Holding will provide an overview of the major issues of the day and answer your questions about those issues. This session also reminds everyone how easy it is to interact with your elected leaders. We will also have an opportunity to review the issues and answer any last minute questions.
Before you get to Washington, it is important that you schedule your appointments and review the key issues. In order to help everyone prepare for the Fly-In, ISRI will hold a webinar on June 14 at 2 p.m. ET to provide instructions for making Congressional appointments, an overview of the key issues, and answer questions anyone might have. The webinar will serve as the primary training session for this year’s Fly-In, so please try to join us.
All the information including talking points is available on the ISRI website and will be continually updated leading up to the event.
ISRI’s Chief Lobbyist, Billy Johnson
