Advocacy & Health Policy: Don’t Miss the Congressional Leadership Conference, ACOG’s Advocacy Event of the Year
Band together with your colleagues to advocate for our specialty and our patients. Registration is now open for ACOG’s 35th Annual Congressional Leadership Conference (CLC), the President’s Conference. This incredibly popular advocacy event takes place March 12-14, 2017 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.
Every year, attendees are armed with two days of intensive training, then sent to Capitol Hill to lobby their legislators. ACOG’s 2017 CLC will feature Topic Table presentations, including presentations on “Repro Health: Keep Politicians Out of My Exam Room!” and “Social Media Advocacy.”
