1400 M Street, NW
Washington, DC 20005

The 22nd annual Leadership Day on Capitol Hill will be held on May 21-22, 2014 at the Westin Washington DC City Center.

Leadership Day enables the College to increase its presence on Capitol Hill and bring our issues of concern to U.S. lawmakers.

This two-day event provides ACP members with advocacy and/or media training, an update on the College's priority legislative issues; briefings from Members of Congress, Administration officials, and key Capitol Hill staffers; and an opportunity to meet with your state's elected officials. A special briefing for Resident/Fellow members and medical students is also provided.

ACP members interested in participating in Leadership Day 2014 should contact their chapter Governor to let him/her know of your interest and to be included in the chapter delegation congressional meetings.
