MRF Bikers Inside The Beltway National Lobby Day
The Motorcycle Riders Foundation (MRF) is pleased to announce that the 4th annual Michael "Boz" Kerr Memorial Bikers Inside The Beltway national lobby day will be held Thursday, May 17, 2012 in Washington DC. The MRF will have secure, free parking for motorcycles just steps from the US Capitol Building.
From 9:00-11:00am, participants will meet at the motorcycle parking area for registration, instruction and lobby material pickup. From 1:00-2:00pm, there will be a program with Congressional speakers. Lobbying your federal officials will take place from 11:00am-1:00pm and any time after 2:00pm.
The MRF encourages you to schedule appointments with your Representative and Senators during the lobbying hours. It is best to begin scheduling those appointments now, as their calendars fill up quickly, particularly on a busy legislative day.
Plan your appointments according to your arrival time. If you plan to arrive promptly at 9:00am (don't forget to take DC traffic into consideration), you can schedule meetings anytime from 9:45am until 12:30pm without conflict with the program that begins at 1:00pm. If you plan to arrive at 11:00am, you can schedule meetings from 11:30am until 12:30pm, and of course after the Congressional program.
Should you not be able to get an appointment, plan on dropping by as many offices from your State as you can during lobby times. Feel free to contact the MRF office with any questions about scheduling.
The MRF has secured free parking from 7:00am until 7:00pm just steps from the US Capitol and the House and Senate office buildings. The exact location of the parking is on 3rd street SW and NW between Madison and Jefferson drives. A map can be found at:
