One of ESA's most valuable member benefits is a high profile, pro-active government relations program. Led by ESA Director of Government Relations John Chwat, as well as an active and vital Government Relations committee, ESA represents the interests of its membership before the U.S Congress, national coalitions, and U.S. government agencies. We also reach out to Chartered Chapters regarding legislation and regulations during a time of increased competition that presents new challenges to our members.
Day on Capitol Hill: April 28-29, 2014
One of ESA's major annual events is the Day on Capitol Hill, which allows members to meet directly with elected officials and their staff members in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. It's an excellent hands-on opportunity to learn more about ESA's Government Relations initiatives, and to have a tangible impact on their implementation.
