What is Leadership Day?

Save the Date: Leadership Day 2021 - May 25-26

Please “save the date” for ACP’s annual Leadership Day on Capitol Hill, being held virtually this year on May 25-26. Unfortunately, due to public health and safety reasons stemming from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this event will not take place in person this year but we are planning an exciting virtual event with more details to follow soon.

Leadership Day enables the College to increase its presence on Capitol Hill and bring our issues of concern to U.S. lawmakers. The two-day event will provide ACP members with virtual briefings on the College's legislative priorities, and an opportunity to meet virtually with your members of Congress.

Please mark your calendars for ACP’s Leadership Day on May 25-26, 2021. If you have further questions, please contact Shuan Tomlinson at stomlinson@acponline.org or 800-338-2746, ext. 4547.
