What is WH&LA Action Day?

Action Day is the lodging industry's day in Madison, providing you with an opportunity to not only hear an inside view on the latest proposals and plans impacting our industry at the state level of government, but also to meet afterward with your state Senator and/or Assembly Representative or their key staff so that they can better understand the concerns of Wisconsin's lodging properties.

We make it easy for you! We will provide legislators and other speakers to inform you on the issues and provide tips on how to meet with legislators, along with a packet of information on the issues, plus… we line up the meetings for you, and provide a lunch before you head to the Capitol with us. We can even provide you with one of our key leaders if you wish, to accompany you in your meetings, and we will have staff in the beautiful Capitol Rotunda to help you find your appointments.

As of 3/15/2017 WH&LA Action Day will feature:

  • State Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna)
  • State Assembly Representative Jill Billings (D-LaCrosse), member of the Assembly Tourism Committee and Transportation Committee, and the Governor's Council on Tourism 
  • WH&LA Issues Update by Trisha Pugal, WH&LA President, CEO
  • Legislative Meetings Overview by Kathi Kilgore, WH&LA Contract Lobbyist
  • Networking Luncheon
  • Scheduled Legislator Meetings at the Capitol for each attendee
What did last year's Action Day attendees say?

"A face to face meeting with state leaders helps to clarify information to assist them in understanding our position on legislation. It has been time well spent."

Greg Stillman, Foremost Management Services, Inc.  Fish Creek

"Action Day provides me with the opportunity to meet with my state legislator, and they genuinely want to hear what we have to say regarding our legislative priorities. There is definitely strength in numbers and legislators do notice our presence!"

Patrick Olejniczak, Kress Inn.  De Pere
