The American Academy of Pediatrics 2014 Legislative Conference will take place in Washington, DC June 15-17, 2014 at The Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. This conference will give you the opportunity to continue building on your advocacy foundation through interactive workshops and in-depth training sessions, while networking with more than 100 pediatricians from across the country who share a passion for advocacy.
During the Conference, you will:
- Participate in meetings with congressional staff on Capitol Hill to urge elected officials to put children first in their federal policymaking
- Attend workshops on topics of your choice to learn skills like how to craft a meaningful message and how to form coalitions
- Learn about federal legislative topics important to children from policy experts
- Hear firsthand from members of Congress and other guest speakers about the Academy's federal policy priorities and how to advocate at the community, state and federal level
Early bird registration for the conference is $575, extended to AAP members through May 14, 2014. After that date, the fee increases to $600. Each individual will be responsible for airfare, hotel accommodations and meals outside of group functions.
