REGISTER NOW: Advocacy Day 2019 on April 17

January 15, 2019

Each year, the WHA Advocacy Day event grows both in size, as well as the impact made on our legislators in Madison. Advocacy Day is one of the best ways hospital employees, trustees and volunteers can make an important, visible impact in the state capitol. 

Join more than 1,100 of your peers from across the state and help make the 2019 event a great success!  

Assemble your hospital contingent for 2019 Advocacy Day—April 17 at the Monona Terrace in Madison. Registration is now open and more information is available online. 

As always, Advocacy Day 2019 will have a great lineup of speakers and sessions, including a keynote speaker to be announced, the popular annual legislative panel discussion, followed by a luncheon keynote address from Governor Tony Evers (invited). A highlight of Advocacy Day is the hundreds of attendees who take what they’ve learned during the morning and then meet with their legislators in the state capitol in the afternoon. 

In fact, more than 600 visits were made last year that directly impacted the outcomes of priority legislation. Meeting with your legislators and speaking on your hospital’s behalf during Advocacy Day is essential to educating legislators on hospital and health care issues.
