The 2017 FAMA/FEMSA GAC Hill Day will be held April 5-6, in Washington D.C. in conjunction with the CFSI’s 29th Annual National Fire and Emergency Services Dinner and Seminars.

2017 is a critical year for reauthorization and future funding of the Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. AFG and SAFER must be reauthorized this year if the programs are to continue for Fiscal Year 2018. Your participation in 2017 Hill Day is, therefore, extremely important. As in previous years, participants will be assigned a Hill Day team that will make congressional visits over the two-day period, including your own congressional delegation. The office of our GAC Sr. Adviser, Dave Gatton, will develop each team’s schedule of meetings, in addition to the necessary resource materials.
2017 Hill Day will begin with our Orientation and Legislative Briefing at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 5th, at the Hilton Washington Hotel in the Columbia 8 Room (Terrace Level). Please click here for the Preliminary Agenda for 2017 Hill Day
FAMA and FEMSA also will host a Reception on Thursday, April 6th, 3:30pm-6:30pm, in the Fairchild Room of the hotel (Terrace Level) for members and guests preceding the CFSI Fire and Emergency Services Dinner that evening at 7:00pm. Tickets for the dinner can be purchased separately by going to www.cfsi.org.
