During Forum, CADCA encourages you to tell members of your congressional delegation and/or their key staffers about what your coalition is accomplishing during Capitol Hill Day on Wednesday, February 2, 2022. This event provides Forum participants from across the country an opportunity to educate policymakers in Congress about the importance of substance use and misuse prevention.

To participate in Capitol Hill Day, you must be registered to attend all four days of Forum from January 31 – February 3, 2022. Upon registering for Forum, individuals will receive a confirmation email, which includes instructions on how to request Capitol Hill meetings. CADCA will not process appointment requests until you have successfully registered.

CADCA's 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 sign up for Capitol Hill Day meetings is Friday, January 14, 2022. For questions, contact CADCA's Public Policy team at publicpolicy@cadca.org.

CADCA is committed to providing a safe, healthy and memorable experience when we as a field convene again in person. Rest assured that CADCA is hard at work preparing for an unforgettable National Leadership Forum experience for you! We have been closely monitoring local, state and federal guidelines related to large gatherings during the ongoing pandemic and have consulted with our vendor partners to ensure extended protocols are in place on-site.

Specifically, out of an abundance of caution and safety, CADCA invites all registered attendees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to join us in-person. While on-site at Forum, attendees will be required to provide proof of vaccination and to wear masks at all times (except when actively eating or drinking). CADCA will also be asking attendees to conduct daily health screening self-assessments using the CADCA Forum event app. More details will be shared on these and other health and safety precautions in the coming weeks.

CADCA considers people as fully vaccinated for COVID-19 in accordance with CDC guidelines:

• 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or
• 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine

CADCA encourages all eligible individuals to receive booster vaccinations as prescribed.
