We’ll begin our day with a group breakfast in a private room at the hotel. During breakfast we’ll present the activities and details of our meeting objectives, strategy, and we will discuss the Congressional Members or staff that we are scheduled to meet.


Our intent is to meet with Congressional Members from Florida and Members/staff from the Modeling & Simulation Caucus. In advance of our trip, we will provide each attendee with more information about our key messages, as well as Congressional Member and staff biographies.


We’ll break up the day by having lunch together as a group. More to come on location.


We’ll finish up our meetings on the Hill and then head back to the hotel to freshen up before dinner. Our evening meal will be at Fort Myer, Patton Hall! Transportation from the hotel and back will be coordinated for you.

Day’s Activities

Today our meetings will come to us! We will host some special speakers from the government (tentatively the Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Space Force, Department of Energy, and a couple of guest speakers yet to be announced).

After breakfast, we will move into our meetings. We’ll provide time during the morning session for everyone to check out of their rooms and store their bags for departure later in the day.


We’ll wrap up the day and our first NCS-led advocacy trip with lunch. We’ll coordinate transportation to/from lunch. After lunch, we head back to the hotel to conclude our first Capitol Hill Connection, then take home great memories of our accomplishments and time together.


We suggest a flight later in the afternoon so you can fully participate in Wednesday’s activities.
