DC Fly-In Trips
On September 20th and 21st, the Paducah Chamber hosted the 2021 DC Fly-In with presenting sponsor Swift & Staley with more than 40 community leaders advocating on behalf of our community.
Meeting were held with the Department of Energy, Federal Aviation Administration, Maritime Administration, the Waterways Council, Americans for the Arts, US Travel Association and other agencies. The group also met with members of Congress including Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, Senator Rand Paul and Congressmen James Comer, Brett Guthrie and Andy Barr.
