SALT LAKE CITY (September 24, 2019) – This week, sixty local business and community leaders will meet with Utah’s Federal Delegation to discuss the business community’s federal priorities on the Salt Lake Chamber’s Annual Washington, D.C. Trip.
“Utah’s ‘secret sauce’ has always been one of collaboration between the public and private sector,” said Derek Miller, president and CEO of the Salt Lake Chamber. “We ask for the Utah Federal Delegation’s help and expertise to advance common sense legislation that aligns with our key federal priorities–immigration, trade, health care and infrastructure. Action on these topics will have a direct and positive impact on our business community, strengthen our labor force and maintain our economic competitiveness for years to come.”
The Chamber’s Annual Washington, D.C. Trip takes place September 24-27, and is a high-level networking, educational and policy development opportunity. Attendees will also meet with other policy and business leaders headquartered in D.C. Guests include Secretary of Interior David Bernhardt, Representative Brad Wenstrup, Chancellor of the College of International Security Affairs Dr. Michael S. Bell, and Jamieson Greer, Chief of Staff to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. The 2019 Salt Lake Chamber’s Annual Washington, D.C. Trip is made possible by this year’s generous sponsors: EnergySolutions, Union Pacific and Zions Bank.
