Gov. Scott Walker is confirmed as the luncheon keynote speaker at WHA’s Advocacy Day 2017, April 19 at the Monona Terrace in Madison. You won’t want to miss this event, perfectly timed to fall during legislative action on the state budget. Assemble and register your hospital groups now at:

“WHA is pleased to, once again, have Governor Walker as the luncheon keynote speaker at Advocacy Day,” said WHA President/CEO Eric Borgerding. “From the release of his proposed state budget to working with other governors and national leaders on potential changes to the Affordable Care Act, we know our attendees will want to be at Advocacy Day to hear from him.” 

The morning keynote is Amy Walter who is known as one of the best political journalists covering Washington, D.C., having worked for multiple news outlets. Walter has built a reputation as an accurate, objective and insightful political analyst. The morning sessions will include the always-popular state legislative leader panel discussion. 

Register for Advocacy Day with a legislative visit in the afternoon. WHA strongly believes the afternoon legislative meetings are the most important part of the day. With the state budget process in full swing, this is your opportunity to make the voice of hospitals heard on priority issues liked Medicaid, behavioral health and workforce funding. To prepare attendees for their meetings, WHA schedules all meetings and provides an issues briefing at Advocacy Day. Additionally, WHA will host an optional pre-event webinar on these legislative visits April 11 at 9:00 a.m.
