APPA Legislative Rally

February 27, 2017 - March 1, 2017

As a public power advocate, you are in the best position to talk to Congress about the direct impact of federal action at the local level. Our coordinated outreach efforts are strengthened because you represent not only your public power community, but also 48 million other Americans who benefit from being served by public power.

Join American Public Power Association for the 2017 Legislative Rally will be held February 27-March 1 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. Legislative Rally attendees are responsible for scheduling their own meetings on Capitol Hill.

Public power professionals who want to get involved and advocate on behalf of their community and the industry should attend.
