Leaders of the local Olympic organizing group, Boston 2024, are heading to Washington, D.C. this week for their first in-person meetings with the Massachusetts congressional delegation since Boston was chosen to represent the United States in a worldwide contest for the 2024 Summer Games.

The US Olympic Committee in January chose Boston 2024’s proposal to host the Games over competing plans from Washington, San Francisco and two-time Olympic host Los Angeles.

The Boston Olympic plan depends on the federal government to lead the security preparations for the Games, and to pay to protect the event.

Boston 2024 members heading to DC for meetings planned for today and tomorrow include Chairman John Fish and Chief Executive Rich Davey, according to the organizing group. They also plan to meet with USOC officials on the trip.
