There is Plenty to Talk About...

2018 marks the fourteenth year AAHAM has brought members together with their elected officials at the AAHAM Legislative Day. We need your support to make sure our voices are heard.

* When grassroots advocates from around the nation unite, shaping healthcare policy becomes more effective. Once we receive your registration, we'll schedule meetings with your Senator and Representative.

* Before going to Capitol Hill you will be given issue overviews, talking points and any other information you need to make our case

* Although the idea of meeting with elected officials may seem daunting, those that have met with them report very positive experiences. Remember, your elected officials work for you!

Bring others from your chapter as well as from your facility AAHAM encourages you to bring other chapter members and coworkers along for this fantastic learning experience.
