Advocacy Day at Waterpower Week in Washington

Advocacy Day is a key component of NHA’s Waterpower Week in Washington.


Each year participants descend on Capitol Hill to follow their personalized, pre-arranged meetings with the offices of their Congressional representatives.


Meeting with Congressional offices is a worthwhile experience and is not as intimidating or difficult as one may think. These offices are excited to learn about what their constituents are working on. Staffers are often interested in hearing about advances in technologies, such as pumped storage or marine energy.

Industry representatives report that advocating makes them feel like their voices are heard and government works for them — we look forward to you having a similar experience.

NHA will equip you with talking points in advance of your meeting(s) and materials to leave behind at offices.
