AARC’s Virtual Lobby Day Is Next Wednesday!
As you know, AARC and your state societies sponsor your Political Advocacy Contact Team (PACT) representatives to come to Washington, DC, every year to have face-to-face meetings with the Congressional delegations from your state. But we want to keep the momentum going. We want a one-day, “Hear Our Voices on the Hill,” where next Wednesday Aug. 4 Congressional offices will be flooded with emails, phone calls, or even meetings back home in your member’s district, to bring home the point that we need Congress to support and pass HR 1077/S 343.
We’ve created a special Virtual Lobby Day webpage with all the details on how to email, phone, or meet. We hope you will participate and let your voices be heard for the profession of respiratory therapy and the patients you serve.
DRIVE4COPD Webcast Available Online
This past Monday, we hosted a special webcast to kick off a new campaign to get all 50,000 AARC members actively involved in the national DRIVE4COPD campaign. If you missed the live session, you can still tune in. Click on the link to read more about this great project and view the archived webcast featuring AARC President Tim Myers and President-elect Karen Stewart explaining why everyone should participate.
