TRSA Leadership & Legislative Conference
March 25 to March 27
The Textile Rental Services Association (TRSA) is sponsoring a Leadership & Legislative Conference Tuesday through Thursday, March 25-27, in Washington, D.C.
TRSA members face a constant challenge: fighting for fair, balanced regulations and pro-business labor, tax, environmental and energy policies. All members and associates are welcome to engage in the Leadership/Legislative Conference consisting of meetings with congressional and regulatory leaders to exercise TRSA’s strength of our political force and participate in networking events.
The Leadership/Legislative Conference prepares TRSA members and associates to “lobby” a member of Congress, updates attendees on federal issues important to TRSA and their businesses, and sends attendees to the Hill to make our industry heard.
Washington insiders advise on how best to inform and persuade authorities so attendees can speak out effectively on behalf of their companies and industry. Federal officials bring attendees up to speed about new laws and advise on ways to establish stronger partnerships with their agencies. Power breakfasts and lunches take place in landmark locations on and around Capitol Hill where attendees hear presentations from members of Congress and highly respected legislative experts.
To improve understanding of TRSA’s legislative priorities so attendees can present the association's positions to Congressional representatives, TRSA develop issue papers. Participants hand these out at their Capitol Hill destinations.
All TRSA committees meet at this Washington event as a means of facilitating these panels' projects and participation while engaging committee members in advocacy with legislators. TRSA committee meetings cover new initiatives, committee member project assignments and discussion of operational and management issues. These working sessions lay the groundwork for TRSA advocacy, research and benchmarking, networking and information-sharing, and education and training activities to guide the industry into the future.
