Hilton Garden Inn and Capitol Extension Building
The 2023 TWGGA Legislative Action Day will connect TWGGA members with key legislators and staff members impacting the wine and grape industry. Start your day off with an educational breakfast with TWGGA Legislative Advocate Kyle Frazier, who will provide important information about TWGGA’s legislative agenda, key talking points for meeting with legislators and staff, and guidance for how you can advocate for your industry. Then, join your fellow TWGGA members in a visit to the Texas Capitol. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with legislators if you choose to preset appointments, or to drop by your representatives’ offices and drop off information with staff. Finally, Legislative Action Day will cap off with a reception/pouring session with legislators and staff (limited to 20 participating wineries and vineyards; participants must provide wine for this event).
