The President’s speech made one thing clear: the administration has been forced to focus on American production. Let’s direct their thinking about how to produce more here, balance trade and create good paying jobs for America.
CPA is holding its annual legislative fly-in from March 13 to March 15, 2012. Last year we visited over 80 Congressional offices with a trade reform message. CPA members and friends will meet with the legislators or staff of their congressional district or state. We will assign teams as appropriate. These two and one-half days are a very efficient and productive use of your time. You will concentrate your advocacy in a very effective manner within a short, productive time period. We made great progress in 2011, and will make more progress to save America’s economy this year.
Please sign up for this event. The earlier you sign up, the better we can arrange Senate and House meetings for you and your team.
