Golden Triangle Days in Austin is hosted by the local area chambers of commerce. It provides an excellent opportunity to socialize and build business relationships with others from Southeast Texas, as well as with state officials, agency directors and their staff members. Meetings with state agency department heads and other officials provide a forum for our delegation to provide information and/or requests to those in Austin, asking for their support or assistance.
About being a delegate
All delegates are urged to attend every meeting and event during the legislative trip, as every aspect of the event encompasses a valuable part of the process. This is a tremendous opportunity to better understand the way the business of our state is handled and to make an impact on the benefits to our area.
During time between group meetings and events, delegates are encouraged to visit the offices of Senators and Representatives from across the state in order to introduce you and your organization to them and their key staff members.
Delegates are encouraged to become familiar with the legislative priorities booklet that is included in registration packets.
Representatives from all area Chambers of Commerce are invited and encouraged to attend the meetings. Input is needed from as many people as possible in order to ensure that meetings with state agency and elected officials are comprehensive, to result in positive outcomes for all of Southeast Texas.
Name badges must be worn at all times for entry into meetings and social events. All delegates are invited to attend all events. Most costs for the activities are being defrayed by the generosity of many sponsors; however, delegates are responsible for their registration fee, travel and hotel fees plus any personally-incurred expenses. Business casual attire is acceptable during the event. Everyone should be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as extensive walking will be required.
