Central Kentucky business, government and community leaders are gearing up for the Bluegrass Region’s annual Washington, D.C. Fly-In on July 24-25, 2019. The two-day trip offers attendees the opportunity to meet with members of Kentucky’s Congressional Delegation, agency officials, Congressional staff, and legislative experts to discuss important federal policy issues impacting the region, state and nation.
Attendees on the trip are diverse and represent various sectors of the local economy such as government, banking, health care, non-profit, education, manufacturing, energy, and professional services. Members of the delegation act as “policy ambassadors” for Central Kentucky. They share the issue concerns of the business community with members of Congress, and advocate for policies or projects aimed at making the region a better place to live and work.
The Bluegrass Region D.C. Fly-In is organized by Commerce Lexington Inc. and the Central Kentucky Public Policy Group. Members of the Central Kentucky Policy Group are responsible for crafting the federal policy agenda each year. The group meets monthly to discuss issues important to the region, and membership includes 45 business, community and government leaders within the eight-county region of Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Franklin, Jessamine, Madison, Scott, and Woodford counties.
