McAllen Day in Austin

 February 5, 2013

The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is planning McAllen Day in Austin on February 5, 2013.  The trip will provide participants with an opportunity to work within the legislative arena and learn more about the issues facing the 83rd Texas Legislative Session.  The goal is to visit state senators and representatives to better acquaint them with several of the issues affecting the Valley.  The visit will include a luncheon at the Sheraton Austin (formerly Capitol Marriott) as well as a reception at the State Capitol later that evening.


  • Cost to participate in McAllen Day is $100.00 per person, which covers luncheon, reception and transportation.
  • Participants will board a chartered bus from the Chamber to and from Austin.
  • Our recommended hotel is the Sheraton Austin (formerly Capitol Marriott), 701 E 11th St., Austin, TX, 512-404-6933 for the night of February 5. Reserve online
