Access background materials for Capitol Hill visits.

AAPA is pleased to once again be hosting the profession's premier event for leadership development and organizational management, the Leadership and Advocacy Summit, Thursday, Feb. 27 - Saturday, March 1, 2014.

The meeting combines the best of what AAPA has to offer volunteer leaders and advocates: interactive advocacy training and coordinated visits with congressional offices (Thursday), followed by comprehensive and specialized education sessions focused on the tools you need to be an effective leader (Friday and Saturday). 

We are pleased to welcome Lisa Robin, chief advocacy officer for the Federation of State Medical Boards, who will present “Expanding Access and Protecting Patients:  Smart Choices in Regulating Telemedicine.”

Attendees will enjoy multiple networking opportunities with constituent organization leaders from across the country. A Physician Assistant Political Action Committee (PA PAC) reception will be held Friday night at AAPA headquarters, and we invite you to come engage with your colleagues in a relaxed environment at this fundraising event. The suggested contribution is $25.

We encourage all CO volunteer leaders to attend and be an advocate, be engaged and be inspired. If you have questions, please contact coadministrator@aapa.org.

We look forward to seeing you there!
