Virtual Congressional Hill Visits 

NOTE: 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.

5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Congressional Reception with Members of Congress
