Washington Legislative Conference

How often do you exercise your First Amendment rights? As Americans, we have the right to petition the government for a redress of grievances, so if something the government is doing is making your life difficult as a home medical equipment manufacturer, supplier, prescriber, or user, join us on Capitol Hill!

Before you even arrive in Washington, D.C., we'll work with you to schedule the right appointments. Once you get here, you'll have access to homecare's top experts, who will help you understand the details of the key issues during a day-long series of seminars at the beautiful Omni Shoreham hotel. We'll also provide tips on the best ways to establish working relationships with your members of Congress, give you handouts to leave behind in Hill offices after your appointments, and then follow-up with those offices to reinforce your message.
