One of the Indiana Chamber’s annual marquee policy events is the D.C. Fly-in on September 26-27. The gathering traditionally draws 100 business and community leaders from throughout the state to travel to Washington, D.C.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky will be the featured speaker at the dinner on day one. McConnell is expected to offer insights on policy, working with the Trump administration and the midterm election outlook for the Senate. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce will also provide an overall election preview.

Proceedings kick off with legislative briefings conducted by members of Indiana’s delegation. Confirmed presenters and topics include Congressman Jim Banks (IN-03) on immigration and Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) on trade and tariffs.

Several members of the Indiana delegation are scheduled to host their fellow Hoosiers and sit at their tables for dinner. At the end of the evening, a cocktail reception awaits at the official hotel: the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.

On day two, Canada’s deputy ambassador to the United States, Kirsten Hillman, highlights the breakfast program, which will be held at the AT&T Forum. The event concludes with scheduled visits to the Indiana congressional offices.

The registration cost is $199 per person, with group discounts available. Register online at, or call (800) 824-6885. Attendees are responsible for their own travel and hotel arrangements.

D.C. Fly-in sponsors helping make the event possible are: Zimmer Biomet (dinner), Smithville (legislative briefing), Build Indiana Council (cocktail reception), AT&T, Duke Energy, The Kroger Co., Old National Bank, TRISTAR and Wabash Valley Power.
