Sac Prepping to Make its Mark in DC
In a matter of days, a contingent of regional community and business leaders will embark on the annual 'Cap-to-Cap' trip produced by the Sacramento Metro Chamber of Commerce. Participants on this five-day conference to Washington D.C. act as a coordinated force to advocate for our entire region.
Once in D.C., these participants. who have been preparing for weeks, will serve as delegates to address this year's issues as defined by the planning committee: air quality, civic amenities, economic and community development, flood protection, food and agriculture, healthcare, homeland security, land use and natural resources, transportation, water resources, and workforce and education.
This year's Program Chair Scott Shapiro says, "This year we have chosen the theme Regional Treasure - the wonderful treasure that our region is as a whole, all of the wonderful individual treasures that exist within our region, from our arts institutions, our innovators and entrepreneurs, our sports teams, our non-profits, to our recreational amenities, and our educational institutions, and our region's most amazing resource: its people."
