At the Federal Policy Conference in September 2011, ESCA members heard from four influential Members of Congress: Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Orrin Hatch (R-UT), House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), House Republican Chief Deputy Whip and House Ways and Means Committee Member Peter Roskam (R-IL), and House Ways and Means Committee Member Earl Blumenauer (D-OR). For the lobby day portion of the event, 15 teams of ESCA members and employee-owners visited 60 House and Senate offices on Capitol Hill.
