This year’s Capitol Day for Tourism is scheduled for Wednesday, February 20, 2019.  The tentative schedule of events is listed below.  Please note that this year’s schedule is different from the past as we will not be offering a pancake breakfast in the Capitol Rotunda. 

Registered attendees will be placed into groups of 2-3 individuals and each group will have scheduled meetings with their legislators during the afternoon hours.  During the morning session, education will be provided with talking points and other relevant information for these meetings.  Building relationships with your legislators is of the utmost importance and YOU are the expert on tourism issues!

This is an event that you do not want to miss!  Watch for additional information coming soon!
