"I thought I knew how the system worked in Washington but after traveling with the WTC of Kentucky and meeting with people on the inside, I learned that my assumptions were wrong.
Traveling with WTC provided my organization access to people who have their finger on the pulse of Washington and who can explain the issues in plain language.
Our organization has partnered with the WTC of Kentucky and we had an opportunity to visit Washington D.C. and meet with legislators as well as subject matter experts to understand the issues and express a voice on topics that impact our business directly."
