2023 Mission to Washington

March 19-23 | The Mayflower Hotel | Washington D.C.

The Mission to Washington is PNWA’s signature event held annually in our nation’s capital. Each year, 70-80 PNWA members converge in DC to meet with agency leaders, members of the Northwest Congressional delegation, key Committee staff, and federal partners. This event is the perfect time to highlight the PNWA agenda for our national colleagues and for you to carry your own messages from the Northwest. PNWA staff are working on the agenda, which will be released shortly. 

We recommend you make your travel plans for Saturday, March 18th, through Friday, March 24th, as meetings will run later into the day on Thursday.

The 2023 PNWA Mission to Washington promises to be an event you will want to attend! 

With the new 118th Congress sworn in, 2023 is guaranteed to be a year of change for our nation. Join us in the nation’s capital as we meet with lawmakers and their offices to ensure our priorities and issues are top of mind. 

Throughout the program, participants will gain valuable insights and network with key federal agency officials, industry partners, and DC insiders. In addition, we will spend two days on Capitol Hill meeting with the Northwest Congressional delegation.  Details of the agenda will be released in the coming weeks. Make your plans to join us today!
