Legislative Fly-In: Capitol Hill Day 2019

Thursday, January 24, 2019  
Share |

Dear SDPA Member,

SDPA, in partnership with AAPA, is pleased to extend a special invitation to PAs in dermatology attending the SDPA Annual Summer Conference 2019 in DC to participate in SDPA’s Capitol Hill Day on Wednesday, June 5.

What is Hill Day?   

On Wednesday, June 5, from 1:00-5:00PM, join forces with your fellow PAs from across the country in conducting face-to-face meetings with Members of Congress and staff on the key legislative issues that directly affect the future of the profession and the patients you serve.

I’ve never done a Hill visit, how will I know what to do?

Don’t worry – preparation for the 2019 SDPA Capitol Hill Day will begin a couple of weeks in advance of the conference with a virtual “advocacy boot camp” session via webinar. The webinar will increase your skills as a grassroots lobbyist, guide you through a visit to a congressional office, and give you pointers on how to have a meaningful conversation with elected officials and congressional staff members. You’ll also receive a thorough briefing on the legislative issues you’ll take to the Hill. Details about how to access the webinar will be made available to registrants later this spring.

What support is provided?

AAPA will provide detailed logistical support, advocacy training, background on the legislative issues, materials, and will even schedule your appointments with legislators’ offices for you.  

What’s my commitment?

There is no cost to participate in the SDPA Capitol Hill Day on June 5. All we ask is that you register in advance, and bring an enthusiastic attitude and your comfortable shoes. Please plan to spend the full afternoon (1:00 – 5:00PM) of June 5 on Capitol Hill.

Novice and seasoned advocates alike will benefit from and enjoy the SDPA Capitol Hill Day.

(Note: Registering for Capitol Hill Day is separate from registering for the SDPA Annual Summer Conference.)

Thanks for your advocacy leadership; we hope to see you in Washington in June!

Director, Grassroots and Political Advocacy
