Legislative Conference

Join over 2,000 electric cooperative leaders in Washington, D.C. to discuss priority issues with members of Congress and administration officials.

NOTE: The 2020 Legislative Conference registration will open in mid-February.

Update: NRECA staff has been closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and wants to assure you that we are taking measures to protect the health and safety of our members, staff and other event participants. Based on the growing risk and local, state, and now, national orders, as well as recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization, NRECA has canceled 2020 Legislative Conference.

If you are registered to attend this event, be sure to cancel your event registration. You may cancel online by signing into cooperative.com, go to My Registrations -> Manage -> Cancel-> COVID-19. And don't forget to cancel your hotel reservation (see Hotel contact information below) and any other travel arrangements.

We are exploring options for rescheduling and/or offering virtual options for those events where such alternatives may make sense. Thank you for your ongoing support of NRECA.

Every year, NRECA welcomes co-op grassroots advocates to Washington for the annual Legislative Conference. Directors, managers, and employees of member-owned electric cooperatives come from across America to spend time on Capitol Hill talking to their congressional delegations and congressional staff about legislative issues affecting electric cooperatives and their member-owners.
