The Greater Akron Chamber invites you to join us for an afternoon of exclusive meetings during our upcoming (virtual) D.C. Experience on March 3rd from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. This unique event is in lieu of our regular (pre-pandemic) D.C. Fly-In where attendees are provided with a platform to discuss a variety of critically important issues with multiple members of Northeast Ohio’s Congressional Delegation, as well as various key stakeholders from Washington, D.C.

As the Greater Akron region continues to combat the impacts of the pandemic and with the Chamber realigning its Public Policy Agenda to reflect such activities, these timely engagements will enable us to collectively share our thoughts/priorities regarding the federal government’s pandemic response and what policies we feel best position the region for economic success moving forward.

  • U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown
  • U.S. Senator Rob Portman
  • U.S. Representative Tim Ryan (OH-13)
