Capitol Connections

When:  May 15, 2019

How can YOU impact the future of the industry?

ELFA member participation in the political process is critical so that policymakers will hear the united voice for our industry and understand how current policy issues will affect the equipment leasing and finance industry.


This ONE DAY program includes:

  • Advocacy training for ELFA members
  • Briefing on the latest public policy development
  • Meeting on Capitol Hill and with select federal agencies
  • LeasePAC Event*

Capitol Hill Meeting Assignments

ELFA creates individualized schedules with our target list of elected officials in the House and Senate for each attendee. Congressional offices are alerted to those scheduled to visit the office and expect to see those listed.

Registered attendees will be assigned meetings based on geography to the extent possible. If you have a relationship with a specific member of Congress, please contact Chelsea Neil ( to discuss.

Attendees will be able to view their individual schedules by logging onto the ELFA Capitol Connections website after May 1. Do not plan travel based on the online schedule! Due to the nature of scheduling with congressional offices, attendees will receive a final listing of meeting assignments onsite at the meeting registration.

Special Note

Attendees should plan to arrive in the afternoon on May 14. Travel home should not be scheduled on May 15 until after 8:30 pm. If you have specific circumstances, please contact Chelsea Neil to discuss.  

Each attendees' schedule is tailored to give the maximum impact for ELFA's advocacy efforts. Since each schedule is individualized, it is critical that any changes in attendance are communicated to Chelsea Neil prior to arrival.

Issue Briefing

To prepare you on the issues  that will be discussed during Capitol Connections, ELFA will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 24.  Afterwards, the webinar will be available online. Additional materials will be provided on the Capitol Connections website; as well as a link to your individualized schedule with background on the congressional offices you will visit.

Registered attendees will be given prior notice of policy updates and provided with printed materials when they pick up their registration materials on-site.

First Time Attendee Webinar
