Siouxland / Washington Conference

The Siouxland/Washington Conference, held every WSDGroupPhotoSpring since 1954, is a unique opportunity to join with community leaders from the tri-state area to travel to Washington, DC and present regional issues of importance to our Congressional delegation. Conference attendees have the opportunity to discuss issues with each of the six Senators representing Iowa, Nebraska,
and South Dakota, as well as the eight Representatives from the three states. The group also meets with representatives of key departments depending on the priority issues for that year. Past events have also included White House briefings by cabinet level executives.

Attendees, which typically number between 60-70, participate in a two-day schedule packed with meetings around the Hill. The tradition-rich event also boasts a steak reception on the first evening of the conference where conference goers mingle one-on-one with the tri-state delegation in an informal setting.

The 69th Annual Siouxland/Washington Conference is tentatively scheduled for April 17 & 18, 2024.
