Why would they listen if you’re not there?



“I was amazed at the impact our team had in just a couple of days!”
- Creed Spillane, Flying Horse Realty, Colorado Springs, CO (CPA Member Company)

Join fellow voters, manufacturers, farmers, ranchers, and workers at CPA’s 2013 Legislative Fly In on March 12-14, 2013.

We need to convince Congress to fix the trade deficit so we stop shipping our jobs and wealth to other countries.

Join us!  The single most important viewpoint for a legislator is yours: their constituent.

They need us to remain in office.  One person’s informed voice is worth 1000 emails and letters. There is no more efficient, cost effective way for you or me to hit this many legislative offices in just a couple of days.

The earlier you sign up, the better we can arrange Senate and House meetings for you and your team.
