Supervisors Santiago and Veerkamp recommending the Board authorize their respective attendance at the 44th Annual Sacramento Metro Chamber's Capitol to Capitol (Cap to Cap, 2014) in Washington D.C. from May 3rd through 7th, 2014 for an estimated cost of $4,000 (Santiago) and $2,000 (Veerkamp, partially funded by the El Dorado Transportation Commission) to be paid out of the Clerk of the Board's travel budget.
Body
In its 44th year, the Metro Chamber's Capitol-to-Capitol effort has grown to be the largest travel program in the chamber's history and continues to be the largest lobbying effort of its kind in the nation. Cap-to-Cap, as it's commonly known, provides a unique opportunity for business and community leaders to align around issues concerning the six-county Sacramento region and to work directly with congressional delegates to organize broad-base support for critical initiatives. Participants also value the chance to network and do business with other peer leaders from the region.
