WHA Advocacy Day Registrations Top 600

Early bird drawing winners are…

March 17, 2017

Registrations for the Wisconsin Hospital Association’s annual powerhouse event, Advocacy Day, have surged past 600 with over a month to go before April 19. Make sure you and your hospital teams are registered for this event at: www.cvent.com/d/svqylc.

Advocacy Day’s morning keynote is Amy Walter who is known as one of the best political journalists covering Washington, D.C. She is national editor of the Cook Political Report and the former political director of ABC News. Over the past 14 years, Walter has built a reputation as an accurate, objective and insightful political analyst. She is a regular panelist on NBC’s Meet The Press, PBS’ Washington Week, and Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Bair. She also provides political analysis every Monday evening for the PBS NewsHour. The day’s luncheon keynote will be Gov. Scott Walker, and a legislator panel discussion will round out the morning sessions.

WHA strongly believes the afternoon’s legislative meetings are the most important part of the day, and encourages attendees to register for Advocacy Day with a legislative visit. 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. That webinar will take place at 9:00 a.m. April 11.

You may also remember our fun "early bird" drawing where anyone registering before March 17 would be entered for a chance to win. Our five winners are:
