Government Relations is one of many valuable ESA member benefits, and ESX 2012 in Nashville offers an excellent way for members to learn more about the association's efforts to influence and guide legislation on the state and federal levels. It's your chance to spend an hour learning about our government initiatives and priorities, straight from ESA's Capitol Hill lobbyist.
ESA's Director of Government Relations John Chwat will conduct free one-hour informational sessions on Tuesday, June 26, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.; and Thursday, June 28, from 11 a.m. to Noon. The sessions will take place in the President's Suite at the Renaissance Nashville, the official hotel headquarters for ESX 2012.
