2022 DC Visit

Each year the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber strives to plan a visit to D.C. that aligns with our members’ needs and the goals of our organization. The trip provides opportunities for members to interact one-on-one with other attendees, with members of the Oklahoma Congressional delegation and defense leaders.

See below to view the agenda from the 2022 trip to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, April 27 and Thursday, April 28. Stay tuned for announcements of the 2023 trip! 


Members of the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber experience a day on Capitol Hill at the 2019 DC Visit.

This annual event includes briefings with Oklahoma’s U.S. senators and congressmen and a reception on Capitol Hill with federal officials and defense leaders. On the second day, sessions will cover specific areas of interest on issues critical to our community including military defense, infrastructure, and more. Attendees will learn more about legislation that impacts local business and hear directly from our Oklahoma congressional delegation.

REGISTRATION
The $900 registration fee includes one night’s hotel stay at The Dupont Circle Hotel, official events, most meals and some transportation to and from programmed events. Air travel to and from Washington, D.C. is not included, giving attendees the option to extend their stay for additional business in the area.
