January 26, 2017 - Wauconda, IL - The Commercial Law League of America is scheduled to host its fourth legislative event in Washington D.C., February 26 - February 28, 2017. CLLA held its first D.C. Legislative Day in February of 2014 and found the event to be very successful in building relationships with legislators. Hill Day also helps market our organization by forming relationships with other likeminded organizations.
Historically, the League has focused on certain bankruptcy issues such as Venue and Preference Reform. This year CLLA will focus on CFPB reform to roll back the impact to our constituents, collection agencies and banks. More information on these positions can be found on the League's Hill Day Event page, visit www.clla.org/events and select Hill Day 2017 from the calendar.
The CLLA has devoted a section of its website, www.clla.org, to Venue Reform. The ad hoc group's written statement as well as other related resources are available in the CLLA Venue Reform Workroom.
CLLA's Hill Day event also provides attendees the opportunity to learn about the important lobbying work CLLA is doing and how to get its voice heard in Washington. Join CLLA in our efforts on Capitol Hill by registering online or contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CLLA has a history of providing members and non-members alike with outstanding educational opportunities, many which provide state required CLE credit. CLLA has presented courses on Venue Reform for many years, as well as hosting a variety of events centered on the topic, such as the 2014 "Great Debate" at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges. 2017 Capitol Hill Day is another such opportunity.
