NATSO Day on the Hill


Congress has the power to make business better.

But it also has the power to make business worse.

If Congress doesn’t hear from the private sector about its issues and concerns, there’s no reason to believe that Congress will make decisions that improve the business climate.

To ensure that lawmakers understand and respond to the needs of the truckstop and travel plaza community, it is vital that NATSO members play an active role in the political process.

On May 15-17, members of the truckstop and travel plaza community will travel from across the United States to Washington, D.C., to educate their elected officials about the critical role the truckstop industry plays in the U.S. economy as well as to discuss key industry challenges.

NATSO’s annual Day on Capitol Hill marks the biggest opportunity for members of the truckstop and travel plaza industry to speak with lawmakers before they vote on legislation that’s bound to impact your future success.

The more you participate, the more Capitol Hill understands our industry and welcomes our positions on critical policy decisions before they are made!

Register for NATSO's Day on Capitol Hill here.


Contact David Fialkov at (703) 739-8501 or with questions.

Attendees will stay at The Alexandrian in Alexandria, VA. The NATSO room rate of $255 plus taxes and fees is available until April 15, 2017 or the NATSO block sells out. Book a room at The Alexandrian here. (The Alexandrian was formerly named the Hotel Monaco and is now a Marriott property.)
