1816 members are upgrading from Team polos and khakis to business attire in order to meet government officials in Washington DC. Our Team has been invited to participate with Team 27 RUSH in their 2nd annual National Advocacy Conference (NAC) from June 14th to 16th. This actually will be Team 1816's 3rd trip to our Nation's Capitol, where we meet with our Representatives and Senators to discuss STEM issues that concern us and directly impact our educations.

Our Team will be meeting with district Representatives Messrs. Paulsen, Ellison, and Kline.
