Have a Voice on Capitol Hill
Come together for ACEP's Leadership & Advocacy Conference (LAC) to celebrate emergency medicine’s accomplishments and continue to work for a better political environment for your specialty and your patients. First-timers to the conference will be trained to educate your Members of Congress while seasoned participants will build upon your already-valuable Congressional connections.
We’ll tackle problems facing our specialty, develop tools to advocate at all levels, and build relationships with your Members of Congress. All while having a good time!

NOTE: A large component of LAC is meeting with your Members of Congress. We anticipate that congressional offices will be doing in-person meetings in July. However, should these events not be able to happen in person, we will move the events to a Virtual Hill Day and Leadership Course. There will be no cancellation penalties for any registrants if we are forced to move to a virtual event.
