Capitol Connections

Equipment finance executives from across the country gathered in Washington, D.C., for ELFA’s Capitol Connections event, May 17-18 at the Washington Court Hotel. This event is designed to educate members of Congress and select Administration officials about the $1 trillion equipment finance industry’s role as a major source of capital and investment in the United States, and to positively influence federal policymakers who set the legislative and regulatory framework for the industry. More than 120 ELFA members will meet with more than 150 Senate and House offices and two executive branch agencies. In addition to advocating for the equipment leasing and finance industry on tax and financial services matters, attendees will hear from keynote speakers on a range of hot topics.
