2019 Montgomery Trip
Name: 2019 Montgomery Trip
Date: April 16, 2019 - April 17, 2019
Registration: Register Now
The Chamber's annual trip to the State Capitol is designed to advance the Chamber's State Agenda and provide an opportunity to meet with key leaders in state government. Past trips have included meetings with the Governor, members of the Governor's Cabinet, and the leadership of the Alabama Legislature.
Local businesses and elected leaders say they have found it to be an excellent opportunity to network with other community leaders and familiarize themselves with Montgomery and our critical state issues.
The Montgomery Trip will be an overnight stay. We will meet at the Chamber, leave by bus on Tuesday, and travel to the Renaissance Hotel in Montgomery where there will be an evening reception. We will leave Montgomery after lunch on Wednesday.
The registration fee includes bus transportation. Hotel reservation is not included - click HERE for hotel reservations.
