Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (tentative), keynote speaker
HNBA Legislative Day was introduced in 2007 and serves to further the HNBA legislative agenda before Congress and executive branch officials through direct grassroots advocacy by our members. It also educates HNBA members from around the country about public policy issues and the federal legislative process. Members are assigned to small teams, then participate in a full day of advocacy on Capitol Hill, attending meetings with Members of Congress and/or their key staffers to present the HNBA’s position on selected issues. Participants also have the opportunity to attend a briefing at the White House by senior administration officials.
Since 2008, HNBA has recognized key legislative initiatives and Members of Congress who redefine the meaning of excellence through their leadership and commitment to their communities with the HNBA Capital Awards.
