2018 DC Fly-In Small Business Scholarship
The Paducah Chamber is pleased to announce a scholarship available to a small business owner to participate in the 2018 D.C. Fly-In on Wednesday, September 12 –Thursday, September 13. During these annual visits to our Nation’s capital, we advocate for our community and our region for projects and public policies that will have a positive impact on our citizens and our businesses.
During this trip we will meet with Kentucky’s Congressional delegation and federal agencies that are important to our community’s future, including the Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, Federal Aviation Agency and national arts organizations. In addition, participants have an “inside look” into what is happening in D. C., build valuable relationships with Washington decision-makers, spend time with other community leaders from our area and, most importantly, BE OUR COMMUNITY’S VOICE.
The scholarship will include the trip registration, two nights in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, airfare from Barkley Regional Airport, and many of your meals. Incidental expenses are not included, such as ground transportation. A Selection Committee will review each application. All applications will be kept confidential. In addition to this application, an in-person or phone interview may be requested.
