Renewal and Remembrance & Legislative Day on the Hill
Arlington, VA/Washington, DC
July 27-29, 2014

 

This annual, combined event brings together more than 450 members from across the country to Arlington, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. During Legislative Day on the Hill, PLANET members lobby their congressional representatives and advocate for the legislation that affects the green industry. Immigrant labor (H-2B) and regulatory issues regarding chemical use and application are currently among the top priorities. PLANET members know what it takes to make an impact on Capitol Hill, and support from sponsors is critical to make this event successful. It's no longer about positioning. It's about taking a position.

Held in conjunction with Legislative Day on the Hill, Renewal & Remembrance is the association's annual service project where members honor those who gave their lives for our country's freedom by improving Arlington National Cemetery's lawn and landscape for one day. A very moving and emotionally charged event, this showcases the giving spirit that is so characteristic of the green industry. Always garnering significant press coverage, in 2013, ABC, FOX, and CBS were among the networks that covered the story nationwide.

Partner with PLANET to make an impact on Capitol Hill and "give back" to the country at Renewal & Remembrance.
