What to Know Before You Go

Whether you are an Advocacy Day veteran or this is your first time taking part in the RV Industry Capitol Hill fly-in, we have gathered resources to make sure you are comfortable and ready to make the greatest impact possible on June 7. 

Below are 9 short videos that cover everything you need to know to prepare for the logistics of meeting with Members of Congress and their staff. The videos range in length from 2 to 6 minutes. Watch them all in order, or pick the areas you want to brush up on. 

In addition to these videos, RVIA will be holding three identical conference calls to discuss in detail the issues and “asks” you will be making during the Capitol Hill meetings. These calls will take place Tuesday, May 30 at 2pm; Wednesday, May 31 at 10am; and Thursday, June 1 at 2pm.
