NOTE: A large component of LAC is meeting with your Members of Congress. ACEP's plan to schedule in-person visits with legislators on Capitol Hill during LAC has recently shifted due in large part to ongoing security concerns stemming from the January attacks on the Capitol. The Capitol is now restricting in-person constituent meetings. The visits with legislators scheduled for the afternoon of July 27 will now take place virtually from the Hyatt. There will be no cancellation penalties for any registrants if they need to cancel. If you registered for in-person and need to participate virtually please contact Member Care at 844.381.0911 or email us at
