2022 Legislative Conference: Program and agenda
About the conference
The conference will take place on Sunday, September 18 through Tuesday, September 20, 2022, at the Conrad Hotel in Washington, D.C. The program is set to begin on Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. (EDT) and will adjourn by 4:00 p.m. (EDT) on Tuesday.
The program will contain policy-focused breakout sessions, designed to offer an in-depth understanding of how to translate the issues that affect the specialty into effective lobbying of your members of Congress on the final day of the conference. Breakout sessions will involve didactic discussions and hands-on training from a panel of health policy experts, AADA staff, and experienced member advocates.
Capitol Hill meetings
On the final day of the conference, attendees will meet with their members of Congress with a small group of attendees from their home state. Capitol Hill meetings are scheduled by an outside consultant and schedules for those meetings will not be available until the week before the meeting via a mobile tool. Schedules will be emailed to attendees along with login information for the mobile tool.
Understanding that flights will be booked in advance, we encourage attendees to book their flight departing Washington after 4:00 p.m. (EDT) on Tuesday, September 20, to provide the greatest opportunity and flexibility to schedule meetings on Capitol Hill. If for some reason your flight is scheduled before a meeting on Tuesday, our consultants will do their best to reschedule, but cannot guarantee changes.
