Background
In its 45th 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 is 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.
