Legislative Day on the Hill

July 19-21, 2015

Collective Advocacy

The congressional landscape is ever changing, and our collective voice can be part of that change. PLANET works year-round with members of Congress and regulatory agencies to affect positive change for our industry. Legislative Day on the Hill, the annual Washington fly-in, is an opportunity for landscape and lawn care industry professionals to increase their knowledge about legislative issues that affect their businesses and to participate directly in the political process. We welcome industry professionals from across the nation to take part in this event.

The Legislative Day on the Hill event is free and includes legislative briefings, an address by a key-note speaker, visits to Congressional offices, as well as dinners, receptions, and networking opportunities. Click here for a schedule of events.
