U. S. Advocacy Days
IAAPA U.S. Advocacy Days is the attractions industry's annual opportunity to communicate to key policy makers pressing priority issues affecting the industry. This two-day event offers IAAPA U.S. members a unique opportunity to interact with lawmakers and staff on Capitol Hill.


Toolkit for Hosting Elected Officials

IAAPA encourages members to contact their elected officials to invite them to tour facilities in their congressional districts and states. This is an excellent opportunity for IAAPA members to demonstrate the positive impact their businesses have on surrounding communities and to communicate their needs to elected representatives. This toolkit is provided to assist IAAPA members in arranging visits to your facilities.
