Innovating the Future


Participate in Capitol Hill Day!

September 10, 2015

Help Educate Members of Congress About Photonics!



The NPI will be holding a Capitol Hill Day on September 10, 2015.  Last year, the NPI had several legislative successes all thanks to the advocacy efforts by the NPI communicating with their members of Congress.

With so many new members of Congress, this is a great opportunity to establish a relationship with your Congressional offices and to educate your members of Congress on the importance of optics and photonics.

Each participant will be placed on a combined society team based on your geographic region. There will be training on the evening of September 9 in Washington, DC focusing on the NPI and how to have an effective meeting. On September 10, you and your team will visit your Congressional representatives. Society staff will schedule and coordinate your day and will escort you to all of your meetings.
