MRF Bikers Inside The Beltway National Lobby Day
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is pleased to report that the 3rd annual Michael "Boz" Kerr Bikers Inside The Beltway national lobby day will be held Thursday, May 12, 2011 in Washington DC. The MRF will have secure, free parking for motorcycles just steps from the US Capitol Building. This year's event will take place from 9am-4pm.
9:00-11:00: Arrival, registration, instruction and lobby material pickup
11:00-2:00: Lobby your federal elected officials
2:00-3:30: Program with invited Congressional speakers at Rayburn House Office Building.
The MRF encourages you to schedule appointments with your Representative and Senators during the lobbying hours. It is best to begin scheduling them now, as the calendar will fill up on this busy legislative day.
Plan your appointments according to your arrival time. If you plan to arrive promptly at 9AM you can schedule meetings anytime from 9:45 until 2:00 without conflict with the program. If you plan on arriving at 11:00, then you can schedule meetings from 11:30 until 2:00.
Should you not be able to get appointments, plan on dropping by as many offices from your state as you can during the scheduled lobby time. Feel free to contact the MRF office with any questions about scheduling or otherwise.
This year's Bikers Inside The Beltway national lobby day coincides with the MRF's eastern regional conference, BEAST of the East, which begins the next day, Friday May 13, in Baltimore, MD. It is just a short ride or train trip away from Washington, DC.
Exact locations for the free motorcycle parking will be announced soon. For those of you anxious to get a feel for how long your ride will be, just use the US Capitol for a final destination. Details for BEAST of the East, including registration and hotel information, are on the MRF website at http://www.mrf.org/events.php.
