Now, the cost of this conference might be a little spendy to some of us (but I supposes that's the trade-off of meeting where you might actually connect with federal public official); it might be just the thing for networking and learning. The group certainly seems to have its heart in the right place and a good group to check out. Its "Meeting With Your Congressional Representatives" pages has good advice that transcends this particular event.
