About TechServe Lobby Day

Lobby Day is TechServe Alliance’s premier public policy event. Member company owners and executives become directly involved in the legislative and regulatory processes with at least two goals: (1) influence public policy that impacts the IT & engineering staffing and solutions industry; and (2) develop long-term working relationships with policymakers. 

Lobby Day Provides Attendees with the Opportunity to:
Participate in TechServe’s private Legislative Briefing. (Monday afternoon)
Meet with members of Congress and/or their staff. (All Day Tuesday)
Network with owners and executives of TechServe Alliance member companies

The TechServe Alliance Government Affairs Team will closely work with each participant to schedule Capitol Hill meetings with his/her own Senators/Representatives and other key legislators. Participants will be notified of confirmed meetings and provided with other important information via email and TechServe’s Advocacy Day App.
