General Information

The 2019 Leadership & Advocacy Conference (LAC) will celebrate emergency medicine’s accomplishments and continue to work for a better political environment for our specialty and our patients. The LAC continues to get bigger and better and each year we send a stronger message to the United States Congress. We’ll train first-timers to educate your Members of Congress while seasoned participants will build upon your already-valuable Congressional connections.

Our goal at this Conference is to highlight and advocate for legislation advancing emergency care, regardless of party labels.

We’ve brought in the Nation’s experts to lead our discussions. 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!
