One Industry. One Voice.
Every day, members of Congress work on legislation that can either boost or hinder the advancement and deployment of unmanned and autonomous systems. The annual AUVSI Hill Day is an opportunity for the entire industry to come together and declare, with one unified voice, how unmanned technology is making a positive impact on local communities and economies across the country. Join us at Hill Day and take advantage of the opportunity to educate your lawmakers and advocate for your business. Amplify our voice and help advance all things unmanned!
AUVSI Hill Day provides you with an extraordinary opportunity to:
Gain a better understanding of current industry issues, how they directly affect the way you do business, and how the industry is being regulated
Interact with your industry peers facing the same challenges and issues
Educate members of Congress about issues they are voting on. As a constituent, your voice matters. They want to hear from people like you – people who work hard each day with these technologies — so that they can do their jobs better for the people who elected them. Be a part of the conversation and help protect unmanned systems across the country.
What Can You Expect?
AUVSI makes it extremely easy to have your voice heard. On your behalf, we:
Schedule your congressional meetings
Place you on a team with other unmanned systems pros and experienced advocates
Prepare you with pre-reads and on-site briefing materials so you know exactly how to participate in a successful congressional meeting
Provide you with all the information you need to share with elected officials
Arm you with knowledge and skills you can apply to effectively speak about the unmanned systems industry and its importance to the economy on Hill Day and when you return to your hometown
Don’t Be Afraid to Participate - AUVSI Makes It Easy
Before you go on Capitol Hill to speak directly with lawmakers, AUVSI provides you with briefing materials so you are ready to address each issue. The materials are specially designed to give you a rich background, so you can be a strong advocate at both meetings with officials on the Hill and those back home.
