Capitol Connections

When:  May 20, 2020

ELFA Coronavirus Update

Due to growing health concerns related to the COVID-19 coronavirus, ELFA has postponed or cancelled a number of upcoming events. These changes are in keeping with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which as of March 16 is urging a nationwide halt to gatherings of more than 50 people for the next eight weeks. We are monitoring health professional advice and updates from the CDC and WHO regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus and following the guidelines from these agencies and local health departments, and will make any necessary modifications to our event schedule as needed to ensure the health and safety of our members, staff, vendors and others. For questions regarding ELFA events, please email meetings@elfaonline.org.

How can YOU impact the future of the industry?
Your participation in the political process as an ELFA member is so critical to ensuring policymakers understand how current policy issues can impact the equipment leasing and finance industry.

This full one day program includes:
  • Advocacy training for ELFA members
  • Briefing on the latest public policy development
  • Meeting on Capitol Hill
  • LeasePAC Event*
Capitol Hill Meeting Assignments
ELFA will create 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 geographic location. If you have a relationship with a specific member of Congress, please contact Chelsea Neil (cneil@elfaonline.org) to discuss.
Attendees will be able to view their individual schedules by logging into the ELFA Capitol Connections flyin website after May 8. 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 Tuesday, May 19. Travel home should not be scheduled on Wednesday, May 20 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 issue that will be discussed during Capitol Connections, ELFA will host a webinar on Wednesday, April 29. 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
