DC Fly-In Trips
The Paducah Chamber’s Annual DC Fly-In, presented by Swift & Staley, will look a bit different this year but we know the work we do with our Congressional members and their staff is too important to our community for us to cancel! From those relationships, Paducah and McCracken County have benefited by receiving millions of dollars in investments in our local economy in the form of jobs, business growth and development.
On October 21st and 22nd, the Paducah Chamber will host the 2020 DC Fly Back with presenting sponsor Swift & Staley. This virtual event is open exclusively to Chamber members who may join any or all of the events via Zoom. On Wednesday, the keynote speaker is the United States Ambassador to the United Nations and fellow Kentuckian Kelly Craft. Congressman James Comer will introduce Ambassador Craft as well as address the attendees with a Congressional Update. Other presenters include the Department of Energy, Department of Transportation, DOT Secretary Elaine Chao and the Maritime Administration and Federal Aviation Administration, Energy Communities Alliance and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. On Thursday, meetings include the United States Department of Agriculture, Destinations International, U.S. Travel Association, Americans for the Arts, National Endowment for the Arts, and National Trust for Historic Preservation.
