“Once again our hospital leaders, employees, trustees and volunteers are rallying around Advocacy Day in incredible numbers to show support for their local hospitals and health systems,” said WHA President/CEO Eric Borgerding. “We know this makes an impact in our state capitol.”
Attendees will hear from morning keynote American Hospital Association President/CEO Rick Pollack who will share the latest from our nation’s capital in Washington, DC. Gov. Scott Walker is confirmed as the luncheon keynote speaker. Also in the morning will be a legislative leaders panel, including confirmed panelists: Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield), Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton), Rep. Jim Steineke (R-Kaukauna) and Rep. Peter Barca (D-Kenosha).
Then it’s off to the state capitol for legislative meetings, the most important part of the day. Over 500 individuals have already registered to go on legislative visits in the afternoon. Those individuals will have an issues briefing that day as well as two pre-Advocacy Day optional webinars to learn more.
In addition, the Wisconsin Hospitals State PAC and Conduit will have a kick off breakfast that morning at the Monona Terrace for individuals who have contributed already in 2016. To participate in that breakfast, contribute online at www.whconduit.com
