WHF/WHFF Partner Series: Mr. Smith goes to...Zoom?

Program Description:

How do you work from home when your work is lobbying?
Who makes more on-camera appearances Congressional cats or dogs?
What does this mean for August recess?

Even though the buildings may be closed, work on important legislation – like PPP and Main Street lending – has not stopped.  The Chamber’s Julie Stitzel and Venable’s Will Nordwind will share with WHF members and guests tips on how to keep working on issues important to housing and finance even when Congress has gone home.  

Julie Stitzel, Vice President, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
William Nordwind, Partner, Venable LLP

About the Speaker:

Julie Stitzel is Vice President of the U.S. Chamber’s Center for Capital Markets Competitiveness (CCMC) and leads the team’s efforts on consumer finance and FinTech policy. 

Previously, Stitzel was the Managing Director of Policy and Strategic Initiatives of C_TEC (Chamber Technology Engagement Center), the tech policy hub of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce where she directed the development and implementation of C_TEC’s policy priorities and represented C_TEC on Capitol Hill, before the administration, and other industry organizations.

Prior to joining the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, Stitzel was the senior manager for federal advocacy and policy for Etsy where she was responsible for directing federal and state legislative campaigns that focused on strengthening US micro businesses.

Prior to her work at Etsy, Stitzel directed a project at the Pew Charitable Trusts and held positions at the Brookings Institution, the Ohio State Senate and various nonprofit organizations. Stitzel is a graduate of Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and Ohio University.

A 15-year veteran of Capitol Hill, with in-house legal, government relations, and crisis communications experience, Will Nordwind focuses his practice on government relations and congressional investigations. These are often high-profile matters at the intersection of the legislative, executive, and judicial branches and overlap with state attorney general investigations or suits. In addition, Will analyzes public policy and political developments with respect to clients' commercial objectives and designs government relations strategies aimed at aligning such developments and objectives. Will also helps corporate, trade association, and industry-specific coalitions to develop and implement government relations strategies.
