PICPA Day on the Hill

June 11, 2019

Harrisburg University of Science and Technology • The Pennsylvania Capitol


PICPA’s Day on the Hill is a unique opportunity for our members to bring their specialized training and problem-solving skills to Harrisburg.

The ultimate goal is to position PICPA members as a resource to state lawmakers and regulators, to build relationships with decisionmakers, and to garner support for our legislative priorities.

If your meeting ends early or you have time before our return to Harrisburg University, the House of Representatives will go into session at 11:00 a.m. To watch the session from the House gallery, go to the bank of elevators to the right of security when you are facing the staircase in the Rotunda, and then go to the 5th floor. You will again be asked to go through security. You are also welcome to sit in on committee meetings.
