A delegation of representatives from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will visit Capitol Hill May 22nd to 24th to advocate issues of importance to Hollywood and the greater Los Angeles region. The group will be in Washington to educate local members of Congress on such issues as transportation and infrastructure funding for Los Angeles, housing and homelessness initiatives, education and work-force development, and other issues integral to the regional economy.
“The Chamber’s annual advocacy trip offers our Chamber members the unique opportunity to meet with their elected officials on the national level to discuss issues of importance to the Hollywood Business Community, and to demonstrate the overall importance of Hollywood as part of the greater Los Angeles regional efforts to get the L.A. economy moving again,” stated Nicole Shahenian, Vice President Government Relations. “With so much at stake for the business community in Hollywood and communities throughout Southern California, it is important that we can show Congress that Hollywood is serious in its efforts to bring about much-needed economic recovery to our businesses.”
The Hollywood Chamber will also be planning its annual two-day Sacramento trip May 31st to June 1st. If you are interested in participating in Chamber’s advocacy trips, contact Shahenian at email@example.com
