Call on Washington

Call on Washington

The Call on Washington is one of TCA’s most important efforts to increase truckload’s

visibility with our legislators and regulators in Washington, D.C. There is no better way to

advance these efforts than to attend the 2024 event on September 12, which will provide

members with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with policymakers and their staff

and tell truckload’s unique story.

Attendees will also receive updates from key Congressmen and Senators who are leaders

of transportation-focused committees and from expert Hill committee staff. Through these

discussions, TCA members will learn what the future holds for trucking legislation,

particularly potential congressional movement on infrastructure proposals.

Thanks to DriverFacts for sponsoring TCA's Call on Washington.

Participation in the Call on Washington is reserved for TCA Members only.
