 Session III


Presented by Brad D. Steele, VP of Government Relations & General Counsel



We all scratch our heads and sigh when thinking about the decisions being made by politicians in Washington, D.C. The legislative process is often slow, and its impact may seem remote. Unfortunately, the policies put in place in our nation’s capital can have a significant bearing on your club’s success.

As the voice of the private club industry, NCA is actively engaged in protecting and defending the interests of private clubs with leaders in Washington. This presentation will provide an insider’s guide to what’s going on in Congress and how those on Capitol Hill and in the White House are directly affecting your club’s day-to-day operations.

The session’s learning objectives will be to:

1. Inform club professionals about the legislative and regulatory measures that are now in place and how to comply with them.

2. Inform club professionals about the impact pending federal legislative and regulatory measures will have on our industry.

3. Provide club professionals the tools they need to help protect our industry’s rights with elected officials.
