PHTA Day on the Hill 2024

PHTA Day on the Hill is back this spring: April 30-May 2, 2024!

This spring, PHTA will be hosting its second annual Day on the Hill in Washington, DC. This event is a significant opportunity for industry leaders and stakeholders to come together, engage with policymakers, and advocate for the interests and growth of the pool and hot tub industry.

Our agenda includes a 2024 election briefing; a tour of the Capitol; and meetings with federal and congressional policymakers where we will discuss important issues affecting our industry and seek support for policies that promote safety, sustainability, and economic growth. By participating, you will be instrumental in shaping the future of our sector and ensuring a thriving marketplace for all. The experience allows you to build relationships and share your story with Congressional offices. PHTA and its federal lobbyist DCLRS arrange all meetings with members of Congress and their staff – all you have to do is show up!

The event is $150 which includes dinner at The Monocle Restaurant and breakfast in the Rayburn Building's Gold Room. Note: Attendees cover their personal travel expenses and hotel.

Event Contact: Tyler Jones, PHTA Director of Government Relations
