CVTA’s Hill Day event took place February 26-27th at the Hyatt Regency in Crystal City, Virginia.

Basic Information

What is Hill Day?

CVTA’s Hill Day is an event where CVTA members come to Washington D.C. and meet with their members of Congress to discuss the importance of commercial truck driving schools, training and the role we play in moving the economy forward and developing safe drivers. CVTA schedules meetings with your Representative and Senators (or a staffer should the member of Congress be unavailable) where you and fellow CVTA members discuss issues facing our industry. These meetings provide an opportunity to educate them on the role our schools and carriers play within the trucking industry.

What are the typical Hill Day events and activities?

During Hill Day, our members attend presentations and briefings, and then culminate with meetings with members of Congress.

Who from my institution or company should attend Hill Day?

All members are welcome. We advise that leadership and company executives attend, so long as they understand the various issues within the industry.

Will CVTA schedule visits with members of Congress on my behalf?

Yes. We will work to schedule meetings with your Representative or Senators. Schedules for members of Congress and their staff fill-up quickly, so we recommend you register as soon as possible for Hill Day. For this reason, please indicate your arrival and departure information on your registration form, so we can do our best to schedule an appointment on your behalf.

When will know who I am meeting with?

A detailed schedule of who you will be meeting with will be provided in your packet when you arrive. However, if you need an advance copy of your schedule, with the understanding that times are subject to change, contact CVTA’s Andrew Poliakoff at [email protected].
