MD-ACS Advocacy Day and 2019 Spring Meeting – Two Events in One
It’s a MD-ACS weekend with Advocacy Day Friday, March 22, 2019 at the Maryland State Capitol in Annapolis followed by MD-ACS 2019 Spring Meeting on Saturday, March 23 at the Westin Hotel in Annapolis. Mark your calendars and register NOW. Don’t miss these events.
On Friday, March 22, 2019 join your colleagues for the first Maryland Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MD-ACS) Advocacy Day, at the Capitol in Annapolis. The first step in creating legislative change is through relationship. Take advantage of this opportunity to start the conversation with face to face meetings with policy and decision makers.
We will start the day with a light breakfast and briefing on the issues currently under consideration by Maryland’s General Assembly. Following the briefing, attendees will visit with their respective legislators and legislative leaders on the committees of jurisdiction for health issues.

By registering in advance and supplying your work and home addresses, appointments with legislators representing YOU will be made in advance. When you arrive on Advocacy Day, a personalized packet of information will be waiting for you with information about the legislators you will meet. This outstanding member benefit provides MD-ACS members the opportunity to establish a personal relationship with the state legislators who create laws, policy, rules, and regulations that directly impact the practice of surgery and the care of surgical patients in Maryland.
