Make Sure to Schedule Meetings with Your Congressional Offices for the March on Washington!

It is particularly important to attend this year’s March on Washington Conference because home care and hospice advocates have a wide range of pressing issues to bring up with their Congressional offices during their time in Washington. Remember it is important to schedule meetings with your Congressional offices as early as possible, as staff and members’ schedules can fill up quickly with other meetings and legislative business. The 2016 March on Washington Conference is taking place on April 3 – April 5 in Washington, D.C.

When scheduling your meetings, NAHC suggests that you coordinate with your state association (directory available here). This will make it easier for advocates to successfully schedule meetings together rather than individually.

As always, advocates will have ample opportunity to meet with and educate offices of both the House and Senate during the March on Washington. Senators and their staffs will be in Washington that week and available for meetings. While Members of the House surprised everyone by deciding to take off that week and some Representatives may be out of town, NAHC expects House health policy staff will be widely available for meetings; in fact, it may be easier than usual to schedule meetings with House staffers that week.
