The event is set to take place at the Tart Lumber Company, a family-owned small business in Sterling, Va.
According to google maps, the Lumber Company is at least a 45 minute drive from the U.S. Capitol. It will cost drivers at least $3.50 in tolls to get to the event, if driving from D.C.
Members are slated to hold a press conference at 10:00 a.m. after a “roundtable” discussion with small business owners.
