Congressional Call-Up 2018 Schedule

Congressional Call-Up 2018 Schedule

The Independent Petroleum Association of America (IPAA) is pleased to announce that it will hold the 2018 Congressional Call-Up on Monday, March 5 through Wednesday, March 7, 2018. The Call-Up is one of the best ways for IPAA members to meet and discuss pending issues with members of the House and Senate.

The meetings on Capitol Hill go to the very heart of this entire program and therefore registrants who attend the Call-Up must plan to walk the halls of Congress and engage policy makers with your other colleagues from the industry. The IPAA staff carefully organizes the Call-Up teams to include specialists from different regions of the country with expertise in all facets of the oil and natural gas industry. However, the message delivered is only as strong as the team that visits congressional offices. If Call-Up registrants drop from their assigned team it severely hampers the ability of IPAA to present an effective argument in support of the industry.
