About the 6th Annual Urology Joint Advocacy Conference
The Urology Joint Advocacy Conference is the only meeting of its kind to combine the resources of the American Association of Clinical Urologists and the American Urological Association. Through these combined efforts, the Urology Joint Advocacy Conference will feature an exciting lineup of speakers, training seminars on grassroots advocacy and lobbying opportunities for urologists to understand the impact that Washington, DC, has on the practice of urology.
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn how the changing political and legislative environment of today will affect how urology is practiced tomorrow.
Join the American Association of Clinical Urologists and the American Urological Association in Washington, DC, in 2011 to find out where urology stands politically at this important time. Hear compelling speakers discuss issues that concern your practice and your political interests, experience our nation’s capital and, most importantly, tell your legislators what government needs to do to protect and defend patients and providers alike. Don’t stand idly by as your malpractice insurance skyrockets, unfunded mandates increase the costs of your practice, and federal reimbursements decline. Congress is listening…Let your voice be heard!
Appointments with Members of Congress
Individual appointments will be arranged for March 29, 2011, between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. We will do our best to arrange an appointment with your member of Congress. However, certain members may be unavailable. If this is the case, we will do our best to arrange an alternate appointment.
You will be given background information packets on issues before arriving in Washington, DC. More information and talking points will be provided at the briefing during the Conference. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions about these briefing materials during the meeting.
