DC FLI 2018

Start planning your trip now & reserve your hotel room! The DC FLI will take place April 21-23.  

Held annually in April, the AANP leadership training in Washington, D.C., which culminates in a lobby day on Capitol Hill, will hone your leadership skills, increase your lobbying effectiveness, and give you the opportunity to advocate for the changing face of health care. This is your time to shine! Your participation is essential to federal recognition in EVERY health-care reform initiative.

The DC FLI will train you to represent the profession through interactive workshops, culminating with meetings on Capitol Hill. You'll also benefit from AANP State Alliance sessions, including an exploration of student involvement in state associations.

NOTE: Due to the nature of legislative business, please bear in mind, not all legislators will be available to meet at the pre-arranged meeting time and you may, instead, meet with his/her staff. Staff meetings are as valuable as meeting with the legislator directly, as staff often provide the basis for legislative decision making.

We highly encourage early registration, as the deadline for scheduling purposes will be April 13th.
