Registration is now open for the 2015 ESCA Federal Policy Conference & Lobby Day being held in Washington, DC September 16-18. In the coming months we will announce more about the exciting agenda and political experts from Capitol Hill who will join us. You won’t want to miss the chance to network with senior executives from S ESOP companies around the country. ESCA company members will also have the opportunity to participate in ESCA’s biggest lobby day of the year on Capitol Hill to continue to build political support for employee ownership, the S ESOP structure, and Senate and House bills to encourage the creation of more private, employee-owned companies.

Registration forms are available on the home page of the ESCA website and can be downloaded by clicking here. You can also register online by clicking here. Completed registration forms can be sent to LJackson@vennstrategies.com. Checks should be made payable to ESCA and mailed to: ESCA, 805 15th Street NW, Suite 650, Washington, DC 20005.

As you can see on the registration form, for your travel planning purposes, we will begin with an opening night reception on Wednesday, September 16th at 6:00 pm and conclude the general session at Noon on Friday, September 18th. Board of Directors, Leadership & Development Council members, and new and prospective members/first-time participants will begin events earlier on Wednesday and will receive additional information about their events. Additionally, Board members will meet on Friday following the lobby day.

We will be holding the Conference again this year at the Willard InterContinental Hotel (1401 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20004).
