If there was ever a time to participate in discussions of drone policy, that time is now. AUVSI issued an announcement this week about their annual “Hill Day.” If you’ve thought about attending before, this is the year to do it.
The following is from the AUVSI announcement:
This annual AUVSI initiative brings together industry leaders such as yourself from across the nation to educate policymakers about:
- How policies directly affect your business and your bottom line
- How our industry is creating jobs and positively contributing to the growth of the economy
- The power and importance of unmanned vehicles to our nation’s defense and security
Members of Congress really want to hear from you directly. We will prepare you with all the details, facts and figures you need to have an effective conversation about the industry and how legislative decisions affect your business.
In addition to the activities planned for Capitol Hill during the day, you’re invited to the Science and Technology Fair that evening. This unique event is organized by the House of Representatives Unmanned Systems Caucus in collaboration with AUVSI. Join lawmakers and your fellow AUVSI members to explore and discover new autonomous vehicle solutions, advanced sensor technologies, data collection analysis tools and more.
Together, we can shape unmanned vehicles legislation and the future of our industry. So, secure your place now and strengthen our community’s voice. Learn more about the schedule and register to participate in AUVSI Hill Day and the Unmanned Systems Caucus this September
Due to the growing demand of this event, participation in the breakfast, luncheon and Congressional meetings is limited to AUVSI Organizational Members.
