News from AAAP Allied Organizations: AVMA and NCADC

As a previous AVMA PAC contributor, have you ever wanted to discuss what issues are important to the veterinary profession with your representatives in Congress and their staffs? Are you looking for an opportunity to participate in a unique, hands-on advocacy experience that will help educate lawmakers before they make public policy decisions that impact your clients, your patients, and YOU?

Here’s your chance: The AVMA is holding its 2023 Legislative Fly-In from April 17–19 in Washington, D.C., and we want you to join us! The fly-in is a special opportunity, marking the first in person fly-in since 2020. Register now to visit with your Members of Congress and make sure your perspective on veterinary issues is heard!   
The Legislative Fly-In will allow veterinary leaders and advocates like you to meet with lawmakers as the new Congress begins, thus setting the tone for important issues affecting the profession such as animal welfare and small business issues.
As we ramp up our advocacy efforts to ensure the voice of the veterinary community is heard on these issues and other legislative priorities, the AVMA is hosting a large group of veterinary advocates in Washington this April to meet face-to-face with Members of Congress and their staffs. 


WHAT: AVMA Legislative Fly-In 2023 (in-person event)

WHERE: Washington, D.C. – Washington Marriott Georgetown & Capitol Hill 

WHEN: April 17-19, 2023

WHO: YOU and other veterinary advocates

Register Now

Before our day on Capitol Hill, you will attend a day of advocacy training on April 18 to ensure you are fully prepared for your meetings with your legislators. The training will be followed by a reception sponsored by the AVMA PAC. On April 19, we will begin with a keynote address from congressional champions of the veterinary profession and then you will meet with your lawmakers in person.
The past few years have demonstrated what an important role veterinarians play in our society, and a strong turnout during the fly-in will help lawmakers know what they can do to help advance veterinary medicine. Please visit the AVMA's fly-in registration website for more information and to register today. 
We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C. on April 17!
