FREE ACHE Cluster Seminar in Philadelphia: “The Basics of Grassroots Advocacy”

Free

FREE ACHE Cluster Seminar in Philadelphia in association with the American Hospital Association,  “The Basics of Grassroots Advocacy”

Legislators are called to weigh in on a number of issues, from healthcare to energy to farm policy and more. Although lawmakers may be experts on one or two issues, it is impossible for them to master every topic likely to come before Congress. Elected officials rely on good staff work, outside expertise and, most importantly, constituent input to effectively represent the people of their district or state. That’s why they need, and want, to hear from you. In this session, Erik Rasmussen, vice president, legislative affairs, American Hospital Association, will provide an update on the pressing issues facing Congress and policymakers, and how the November mid-term elections could impact hospitals and health systems. He will also discuss best practices for establishing and nurturing relationships with elected officials and their key staff members and how you can share your organization’s story for maximum affect.

Presented by:

  • Erik Rasmussen, VP of Advocacy and Public Policy Group in the Federal Relations Dept., American Hospital Association

Explore the most-pressing issues facing Congress and policymakers and the impact to hospitals and health systems from Erik Rasmussen, vice president, legislative affairs, American Hospital Association.
