Lobby Day - TechServe Alliance’s Annual Legislative Briefing and Day-on-the-Hill

May 20-21, 2019

TechServe Alliance members from all over the country joined us on Capitol Hill this week for our annual Lobby Day. Owners and executives in the IT staffing industry were able to meet with members of Congress and their staff to educate them on the issues impacting their businesses.

In addition to educating legislators on the IT and engineering staffing and solutions industry and the role it plays in the U.S. economy, members addressed the following issues:
  • The near-term critical shortage of talent in IT and other STEM occupations and how agency actions and proposed legislative changes to the H-1B visa program would exacerbate the problem
  • Long-term support for K-12 and vocational STEM education
  • Ensuring that potential changes to tax and labor laws to address gig economy and worker classification issues fully accommodate IT and engineering entrepreneurs who offer their services as independent contractors
