2015 NYSHFA/NYSCAL Legislative Visitation Day

Esq. Stephen B. Hanse in Legislative

As previously communicated in the January 14th member mailing, NYSHFA/NYSCAL will be holding a Legislative Visitation Day on Monday, March 2nd in Albany to meet with key elected officials and policymakers regarding issues and concerns related to the 2015-2016 Executive Budget (the Governor is presenting the Executive Budget on Wednesday, January 21st).

We will start the day on March 2nd in the Legislative Office Building with a light breakfast and then divide into groups for meetings with legislators and policymakers.  All meetings will be arranged by NYSHFA and we will e-mail concise issue briefs and meeting schedules to each participant prior to their arrival in Albany.  NYSHFA will also hold a conference call approximately one week prior to our Albany visitation day to review discussion issues and meeting logistics.

In addition, we will be holding a fundraiser dinner the evening before our Legislative Visitation Day on Sunday, March 1st – details to follow.

A block of hotel rooms has been set aside at the Hilton Albany, 40 Lodge Street, Albany, New York for the night of Sunday, March 1, 2015.  To book a room, please call the Hilton Albany directly at 1-866-691-1183.  We have a rate of $149.00 (standard guest room).  The group Code is 1NYSHF.  Also, the discounted parking rate is $8.00.  The cutoff date for reservations is February 6, 2015.
