Who attends the AHIMA Hill Day? 

AHIMA members that register for the full two-day Advocacy Summit prior to February 9, 2024, will be scheduled for Capitol Hill Day visits on March 12, 2024. Because of the time necessary to schedule meetings with congressional offices, AHIMA members registering after Friday, February 9, 2024, will only be eligible to attend the Day 1 Policy Institute. 

Can I attend Hill Day (Day 2) without attending the Day 1 Policy Institute? 

If you are planning to attend Capitol Hill Day, you must register for the full Advocacy Summit and attend the Policy Institute on Day 1. Attending the Policy Institute will ensure that members have the appropriate context and background and will be aligned with AHIMA national legislative efforts and messaging on Capitol Hill. It will also help reduce confusion in setting up appointments with congressional staff and members of Congress.

Will all congressional meetings be in person? 

We expect nearly all congressional meetings to be held in-person on Capitol Hill during Advocacy Summit. Should one of your congressional meetings be virtual, we will assist so that you may attend the meeting virtually. 

How long does Capitol Hill Day Last? 

Meetings may be scheduled at any time from 8:30 a.m.– 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 12, 2024. Please ensure that your travel plans allow you to attend Capitol Hill meetings that end as late as 3:00 PM.
