Not sure if the D.C. delegation is right for you? Read what our past delegates had to say about the trip’s impact on their business:

““There’s always such a great sense of camaraderie among the delegation. Newcomers are quickly welcomed and encouraged to take center stage. Our range of delegates, from professional advocates to business community members, enhances our access to our nation’s decision-makers. It’s clear that due to staff’s hard work and our years of a consistent presence in Washington, our voices are considered credible and two-way relationships begin.”

“The Chamber’s delegation trips to D.C. provide 2-1-1 San Diego, along with our partners throughout the region, the platform to have a collective voice on national issues that have an impact at a local level.

For us at 2-1-1, we’ve had the opportunity to sit face-to-face with leaders from various Congressional offices and agencies to talk about issues facing our sector and those we serve, in areas such as the military and veteran landscape, workforce development, housing, health and social services, and technology. This results in a unique opportunity to bring together our social and government sectors and provide collective solutions to systematic issues.

Understanding the importance of the whole community working together locally and nationally to solve important issues, it was priceless to have the support and guidance from the Chamber, its board, and members.”
