PLANET Announces Keynote

Each year Legislative Day on the Hill, which takes place in Washington D.C. brings together landscape and lawn care professionals to be briefed on legislative issues that affect the green industry.

The Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) announces that Ari Shapiro, NPR's White House correspondent, will give this year's keynote address at Legislative Day on the Hill. The address, titled "Behind the News of the Moment," will be given on July 22nd at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

Legislative Day on the Hill is an opportunity for landscape and lawn care companies to discuss important industry issues, such as H-2B, business or pesticide issues, Lyme disease, and unionization of businesses.

All industry professionals are encouraged to participate in Legislative Day on the Hill. It is an opportunity for the landscape industry to build an awareness of who we are, as individuals and as an industry, with our congressional members.

"We encourage participants to pick issues that are most important to them and to their business to discuss with legislators," said Tom Delaney, PLANET's Director of Government Affairs. "Those attending Legislative Day on the Hill get training about how to speak with legislators and congressional staff and get the satisfaction of knowing that they helped the industry by adding their voice to the legislative process."

Shapiro's speech is just one part of PLANET's annual Legislative Day on the Hill activities. Attendees will also enjoy the award-winning Renewal & Remembrance program, which takes place on the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
