Leadership Day: May 22-23, 2018

The 26th annual Leadership Day on Capitol Hill will be held on May 22 - 23, 2018 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.

This two-day advocacy event is a great opportunity for the College and our members to increase our presence and bring visibility to issues of concern to Congress. As usual, there will be training sessions and briefings by congressional staff and key government officials and staff on Tuesday, May 22. Attendees will also receive a comprehensive orientation on ACP’s top legislative priorities.  A special briefing for Residents/Fellows-in-training and medical students is also provided.  Visits to Capitol Hill will take place on Wednesday, May 23. 

This event is open to ACP members only.  ACP members interested in participating in Leadership Day 2018 should contact their chapter Governor to let him/her know of your interest and to be included in the chapter delegation congressional meetings.
