Last week, about 40 AHCA/NCAL Future Leaders and Political Ambassadors visited Washington for Advocacy Training and meetings with their Members of Congress from Wednesday to Friday.

Both groups were able to attend a reception for the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), where, despite votes in the House and stormy skies, Assistant Democratic Leader James Clyburn (D-SC) and several other members talked with the advocates Wednesday evening.

The next morning, AHCA Political Ambassadors were able to join a special White House summit focusing on women’s leadership, where they discussed the long term care profession with White House staff and were able to snap a picture along the way.

Finally, all groups gathered Thursday afternoon to meet with over 70 Congressional offices on both sides of the aisle, reinforcing AHCA/NCAL’s progress on the Quality Initiative despite ongoing Medicare cuts.
