2021 FIA Lobby Day
2021 FIA Lobby Day
March 17-18, 2021
Live Virtual Meeting
FIA Members Only 





Make plans to join your forging peers for FIA's 18th Annual Lobby Day on March 17-18, 2021. Lobby Day 2021 will be held as live virtual meetings via Zoom organized by FIA's lobby firm, Mehlman Castagnetti Rosen & Thomas. The firm will be scheduling Zoom meetings with key members of the U.S. House and Senate. This partnership allows FIA to expand its reach on Capitol Hill immensely.

Lobby Day provides an opportunity for you to discuss key industry issues that directly impact your business with your congressional leaders in Washington, D.C. Key topics for discussion include fair trade, workforce development and infrastructure. Given the challenges that COVID-19 has brought to many of our members, it is even more important to engage with lawmakers and remind them of the key issues that impact the forging industry.

Cost to Attend: $75
