The PHTA Day on the Hill is back this spring - March 29-30, 2023!

Every day, Members of Congress work on legislation that impacts out industry. The PHTA Day on the Hill educates you on how to effectively advocate for the pool, spa and hot tub industry, brings you face-to face with policymakers, and gives you an opportunity to discuss issues important to you. The experience also allows you to build relationships with Congressional offices and convey our industry’s story and the impact we have on the national economy.

The event is $50 (attendees cover their personal travel expenses and hotel).

PHTA and its federal lobbyist DCLRS arranges all meetings on your behalf; from large and small group visits with members of Congress and their staff - we have you covered. All you have to do is show up!
