ESOP Association Advocacy

Complete Your Trip by Visiting Your Representatives in Congress

For 42 Years The ESOP Association’s National Conference has served as a cornerstone for all ESOP lobbying and advocacy.  Our conference often creates the first opportunity for building key relationships, especially with newly elected Members of Congress, and for cementing long-held relationships with our ESOP Champions.

For our members, we have many resources available to make your meetings on Capitol Hill a huge success.  Head over to our National Conference Advocacy area to find more information about your representatives, as well as the members-only resources for your Capitol Hill visit.
