2013 DC FLI
May 12-14 is the DC Federal Legislative Initiative (DC FLI)
Your profession needs you! There’s no better time – and no better opportunity – to come to Washington to learn the essentials of advocating for the naturopathic profession.
The DC FLI will equip you with the messages, training, and peer-to-peer enthusiasm to take our message to Capitol Hill. By becoming an advocate, you’ll form valuable skills and relationships that you can use throughout your career!
The DC-FLI is celebrating its 10th year of preparing naturopathic physicians – and physicians in training – to articulate clear and targeted messages that Members of Congress need to hear. What do naturopathic doctors do that contributes so vitally to the health of our citizens? Over the 3 days of the DC FLI, you’ll be ready to join your peers in educating public policymakers!
Each year we’ve held the FLI, our footprint on Capitol Hill gets bigger and our nation takes further steps toward comprehensive wellness. We now meet with more than 600 congressional staff and Members of Congress! By participating in the FLI, you’ll help your profession speak out even more strongly.
The FLI this year is being held on a Sunday-Monday-Tuesday because Members of Congress are more likely to be in their offices in the middle of the week versus a Monday (our traditional “lobby day”). And, that evening we’ll hold AANP’s popular Whole Health Reception in the Capitol complex itself!
Registration for the FLI is FREE for AANP members and only $150 for others interested in taking part. The conference hotel is the Hilton Arlington – click here to book your room at the special rate (good through April 20).
Specific questions? Contact Mike Jawer, AANP Director of Government and Public Affairs at (202) 237-8150; firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spring is a wonderful season in Washington and you can make it even more so by joining with your peers at the DC FLI! It’s an advocacy education that will provide returns throughout your career. Make your plans now and help us make further “healthful connections” on Capitol Hill!
