National Hill Day 2019
May 8, 2019
Following the adjournment of the national conference, NAATP will lead our constituency in National Hill Day 2019 on Wednesday, May 8th. Our public policy leadership will train and lead our members through a policy advocacy day. You will be prepared to meet with your Congressional Representatives and Senators to discuss addiction law and policy. Be sure to extend your conference stay in DC through May 8 and participate in this unique opportunity.
Training specific to Hill Day will occur in the afteroon of Tuesday, May 7th at the end of the conference to offer tips for an effective meeting with your legislators, along with briefings on legislation and policy being considered on Capitol Hill. On Wednesday morning, May 8th, we will kick the day off with a breakfast and final briefing at Capitol Hill before we spread out for appointments with our US Representative and Senators. Detailed agenda coming soon.
Identifying Elected Officials and Appointments
The registration process will ask you to identify your House of Representatives member and your two Senators. We have provided a link to access that information below and on the registration form. This will help us connect those with common legislators prior to arriving in Washington. Participants will schedule their own appointments with their elected officials’ offices, and we will provide information to help you do that! If political advocacy is new to you, don’t worry, we will help you each step of the way!
Constituents are important advocates. You bring to Washington DC the local perspective and that is what your Congressman/woman and Senators WANT to know – what does this problem look like in my district/state and how will legislation being considered effect the folks back home. Your contribution to the conversation is critical to developing good policy and passing effective laws. We look forward to a strong showing of NAATP members at National Hill Day 2019!!
