Advocacy Day

We are happy to announce that this fall we will be hosting an in-person Advocacy Day that will take place Tuesday, October 17 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC from 8:00am – 4:00pm. (Individual schedules will vary.) This year’s Advocacy Day is being held during a fly-in day (when Members return from the district to Washington, DC) for the House of Representatives, many House Members, especially those who must travel long distances to DC, will not be available for in-person meetings. For these cases, meetings will be held with senior staff. Senate meetings will proceed as normal.

If you would like to attend Advocacy Day, you must sign up (at no additional charge) when registering for the Summit.

Luggage Storage Information
Luggage storage will be available for those who wish to participate in Advocacy Day at a location near Capitol Hill and Congressional offices. More information will be provided to Advocacy Day participants via email.

Outbound Travel Information
If you are planning to participate in Advocacy Day, please make note of your outbound travel arrangements. Meetings on Capitol Hill can go until 4:00pm on Tuesday, October 17 and it takes approximately 1 hour to get to either BWI Airport or Dulles Airport from Capitol Hill via car and approximately 30 minutes to get to DCA from Capitol Hill via car.
