National Advocacy Day

ASCA’s National Advocacy Day program gathers participants from across the country to meet and build relationships with policymakers who make decisions that directly impact the ASC community and their patients. ASCA schedules a full day of congressional meetings on Capitol Hill for each participant. In addition, ASCA provides dinner and a training briefing the night before. During the briefing, ASCA staff explain current ASC legislation and how to conduct a successful congressional meeting.
