ASCLS Legislative Symposum

ASCLS Legislative Symposum

What is the ASCLS Legislative Symposium?

The ASCLS Legislative Symposium brings together members from related organizations, including NSH, ASCP, CLMA, AGT, AMT, and PAMET-USA, to meet with their representatives and senators on Capitol Hill as a unified front on behalf of our profession. Each year these leading organizations urge their members and leaders to come to Washington to provide a visible and informed voice, and make our concerns known inside Congress.

The Legislative Symposium provides a great education on the how-tos of lobbying. Attendees are coached on presentation techniques so they can effectively talk to their congressional representatives during their appointments. They are well received in the congressional offices. Attendees return home from Washington with first-hand knowledge of the political system in action and confidence that they make a difference.

The 2020 Legislative Symposium will be held March 16-17 at the Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Alexandria, VA. Each attendee will receive pre-meeting emails describing the issues to be discussed with their congressional representatives as well as extensive information to be left with each office. Registration will open Winter 2019. 

Legislative Symposium Scholarship

NSH offers two scholarships for new professionals to attend the Legislative Symposium. Applications for these scholarships will open December 2019.
