NSH members will again meet with their Representatives and Senators on Capitol Hill as a united front on behalf of our profession along with ASCLS, CLMA, ASCP, AGT, and AMT members. NSH will join these leading organizations March 18-29 in Alexandria, VA. We encourage you to come be a part of this unified front on behalf of histology to make our concerns known to Congress.

Histology professionals and leaders are needed to come to Washington, D.C. to provide a presence and informed voice to make our concerns know inside congress.  Visit ASCLS’s website to learn more and register. Be sure to indicate you are with NSH, so that we may assist you in scheduling your visits with your Senators and Representatives. Early registration rates are in effect until February 15, 2019.

Education, Experience, Leadership

A key component of the Legislative Symposium is facilitated education in the "how-to's" of lobbying. Our sessions will familiarize attendees with the organizational structure of Congressional offices, committees and staff. You will be coached on presentation techniques specifically tailored for the political environment. Newcomers will know what to expect and what to do when they arrive on Capitol Hill for appointments on day two. Everyone will return home from Washington with first-hand knowledge of the political system in action and confidence knowing they can make a difference.
