Join NHPCO for Capitol Hill Day

Capitol Hill Day Registration Deadline is April 1st

Remember your first day of school? No matter at what level – elementary school or college – most people would say that they felt a combination of excitement and anxiety. There’s the fear of saying the wrong thing, or going to the wrong place. For many, the idea of visiting Capitol Hill for meetings with Members of Congress and their staff can take you back to those first days of school – regardless if it is your first time, or if you are a seasoned veteran.

That’s why NHPCO has a new and improved Capitol Hill Day program planned for this year. We want our members armed and ready to go when they head to the Hill on April 22nd.

The enhanced Capitol Hill Day is designed for everyone, at every level of the hospice community. It is a busy time on Capitol Hill. Congressional offices see hundreds of constituents each week, advocating on behalf of diverse and pressing national issues. That is why it is crucial for us to make sure that we are maximizing our opportunities to emphasize the value of hospice during Hill Day, and throughout the year. The enhanced strategy sessions for messaging and meeting preparation have been designed to give us the unique and unified presence on Capitol Hill that we need to protect compassionate and quality end-of-life care for future generations. Capitol Hill Day promises to be an interactive, educational and fun experience for attendees!

Don’t miss out on Capitol Hill Day - registration ends at midnight on April 1st. There are just two more days left to sign up for this exciting opportunity. For more information on Hill Day, go to http://www.nhpco.org/i4a/pages/Index.cfm?pageID=5809.
