    US Capitol Dusk

    At the Nation's Capitol

    NECA members are making a difference on Capitol Hill. Join us in Washington at the Mandarian Oriental from Tuesday, May 6 through Thursday, May 8 for NECA’s 2014 National Legislative Conference.Participants in the Conference will take part in issue briefings and engage with Members of Congress and Washington insiders while gaining a unique perspective on the legislative process. All registrants have the opportunity to meet with legislative leaders in their offices and at our Congressional Reception. Members from the Northeastern Illinois Chapter, NECA are frequent attendees. Among NECA’s legislative priorities this past year were policies aimed at job creation, pension relief, reducing the estate tax, procurement reform, and closing a loophole that allows employers to misclassify employees as independent contractors. NECA also opposed legislation to reform our immigration system that could hold contractors liable for the hiring practices of subcontractors.
