A New Congress Means New Opportunities for AED Members

The industry’s premier public policy event is right around the corner, and we want to make sure you’re there! As a new Congress is settling in on Capitol Hill, there is a possibility for more threats, and unique opportunities to achieve policy successes in Washington. By joining us from June 11-13 for the Washington Fly-In at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, you will get the opportunity to let your voice be heard by those on Capitol Hill!

If you want to see robust infrastructure investment, key provisions from the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act remain in law and made permanent, policies addressing the skilled workforce shortage and commonsense regulatory policy, come to Washington to push your lawmakers and the administration to support a pro-equipment industry agenda.

Those who have previously stopped by and said hello to Washington Fly-In attendees included Reps. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) and Mark Amodei (R-Nev.), Reps. Lou Barletta (R-Pa.), Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), Mike Bost (R-Ill.), John Katko (R-N.Y.) and Jimmy Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.). Updates by policy experts on issues important to the industry were made by the government affairs offices of John Deere, Vermeer, Caterpillar and Volvo.

During your time in Washington, you’ll hear directly from senior lawmakers, administration officials and policy experts. First, our Washington team will bring in experts and officials to get you up to speed on what to expect when meeting with congressional offices. We will then schedule the meetings for you with your congressional representatives and senators. All you need to do is show up in our nation’s capital and be ready to talk about your company. And we promise, you’ll even have some fun!

We can’t take for granted that lawmakers (Republican or Democrat) understand our businesses and our industry. We must be at the table, and that involves more than AED being present; it means construction equipment dealers creating a presence in Washington and advocating for their companies and the industry.

The Association and the industry’s voice is more influential when we participate and are vocal during the process. Take the time away from your office to ensure future policy victories for legislation that directly benefit your company and your bottom line. There’s too much at stake for you and your company not to join use for the Washington Fly-In. To find out more information, keep an eye out for a schedule or to register today visit
