Many League Members have Washington "Government Affairs" Offices which may not be "up to speed" on the latest freight transportation issues impacting your company's supply chain bottom-line. The League's Washington Freight Transportation Policy Forum on March 28-29, 2011 presents the perfect opportunity for them to get immediate access to the nation's leading policy makers, and to hear about the issues that hold enormous consequences for you and your company. Even if you are not able to join us we urge you to have your Washington office check out this program and join us for this major event. Please forward this message to your Washington, DC office.
Quality information, access to national political and industry leaders, and professional networking are at the core of the Washington Freight Transportation Policy Forum, March 28-29, 2011 at the Key Bridge Marriott in Arlington, VA. Our program's theme is "Mapping America's Vision for Freight Transportation." No other program offered today will present such diverse perspectives on the direction that freight transportation is headed.
