D.C. Fly-in: Making a Difference in Washington
Among the numerous benefits of membership with the Indiana
Chamber of Commerce is one of the most impactful: When the Indiana
Chamber comes to Washington D.C., people listen.
Over 100 business and community leaders traveled to the
nation’s capital for the annual D.C. Fly-in at a time when the spotlight
was on Indiana. President Donald Trump unveiled his tax reform plan
at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on the first day of the Fly-in and
members of Indiana’s congressional delegation accompanied him on
that trip. Indiana senators Joe Donnelly and Todd Young stepped off
Air Force One back in Washington and joined Sen. Rob Portman
(R-OH) to address our dinner guests on tax reform potential.
Below is a recap of some of the Fly-in activity and reaction, as
captured on Twitter. The Indiana Chamber has over 17,500 Twitter
followers. Are you on the list?
