We have great news for members who are interested in public policy and advocacy!
The 25th annual Leadership Day on Capitol Hill will be held May 23 - 24, 2017 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Leadership Day is a great opportunity for ACP and its members to increase their presence on Capitol Hill and bring visibility to issues of common concern.
In addition to having an opportunity to meet with your legislators and staff in Washington, D.C., participants are provided with in-depth briefings from White House officials, Capitol Hill staffers, and members of Congress; all of whom are among the top health care decision makers. Participants will also receive a comprehensive orientation on ACP’s top legislative priorities.
The full-day orientation and briefings by key Administration officials and congressional staff will occur on Tuesday, May 23. Visits to Capitol Hill to meet with legislators will take place throughout the day on Wednesday, May 24.
