The 2021 Federal Advocacy Conference is a unique opportunity for psychiatrists to lobby members of Congress on issues that affect their practice and patients. All APA members are invited to attend and play a critical role in shaping health care policy during the 117th Congress. Registration closed on May 28, 2021. If you have questions regarding this conference, contact APA's Department of Government Relations at [email protected].
The conference will take place on two separate days:
On June 5, attendees will attend a conference to learn APA's legislative agenda and learn everything they need to know to advocate for psychiatry. The experience will include insights from APA's leadership and staff on the inner workings of Congress, and the legislative process as well as a hands-on advocacy training.
On June 10, attendees will join their colleagues to meet virtually with their members of Congress and their staff. Attendees are expected to be fully available this day to attend congressional meetings.
