Yesterday ERA wrapped up the 2017 Government Affairs Fly-In and we could not be more excited for next year! The Government Affairs Fly-In in Washington, D.C. is an opportunity to establish or maintain your presence as an industry leader, as well as network with other DR industry leaders.

Over the last couple days, attendees had the opportunity to personally meet with congressional and regulatory representatives to talk about the issues most important to our industry, actively participate in the legislative process, and gain insights on upcoming policy changes that could affect their business.

We could not be more thankful for this incredible event, our sponsors, and every person that made this a success. Below are some highlights of the panel presentations and keynote speakers. We hope to see you next year!
