Our Public Policy team needs to schedule all your meetings, as this minimizes the potential for duplication and overlap which is critical to maintaining good relationships on Capitol Hill.

The deadline to schedule Capitol Hill Day appointments passed on Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020. For questions regarding your appointment, email publicpolicy@cadca.org.

To prepare for your Capitol Hill Day meetings, attend the State and Territory Meetings during Forum 2020 on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 5 pm. This interactive networking event gathers fellow regional and state-level youth and adults to build stronger state policy alliances and to help prepare for CADCA’s Capitol Hill Day. Goals for the meetings are:

  • Plan for Capitol Hill Day
  • Provide an opportunity for Forum newcomers to connect with Forum veterans from their state for support and tips for getting the most out of the Forum
  • Showcase all that CADCA has to offer to strengthen lasting connections with other attendees
