AOA on Capitol Hill

Join optometry’s advocates in Washington, D.C., April 24-26, for the joint AOA on Capitol Hill and AOA Payer Advocacy Summit.

AOA on Capitol Hill

Directly connecting the profession’s leaders with national policy leaders, AOA on Capitol Hill is a key reason why the AOA is consistently recognized as one of the most effective, respected advocacy organizations in the nation’s capital. Following two years of virtual programming, AOA on Capitol Hill looks to bolster momentum gained in 2020 and 2021 with optometry coming together, in-person, once again, while also utilizing new technologies to allow for some virtual attendance and participation.

AOA on Capitol Hill participation is open to advocacy-minded AOA doctors and optometry students with sessions intended to prepare attendees to increasingly join the ongoing advocacy fight for optometry’s future. Additionally, attendees may have the opportunity, in close coordination with their state associations, to participate in meetings (either in-person or virtual) with their federal legislators.

Please note: All attendees are responsible for making their own hotel reservations here (the conference group rate at the J.W. Marriott is $360 + tax 14.5% for single or double occupancy). Please book by March 30, 2022, to guarantee this rate.

Further registration information and agenda will be available soon.
