Thank you for joining us for NLC’s 2019 Capitol Hill Advocacy Day! The discussions you have with federal legislators and their staff while in Washington, D.C. will help make a difference for cities, towns and villages everywhere.

How to Access Your Schedule and Capitol Hill Advocacy Day Materials
NLC is partnering with Soapbox Consulting to schedule all appointments with congressional delegations for our Capitol Hill Advocacy Day participants. Because congressional appointments can and do change up until the last minute, final printed schedules will not be available until the day before the event during our Capitol Hill Advocacy Day Briefing. However, you will have access to your preliminary schedule through our Advocacy Day Mobile Tool, which gives registered participants access to:
- Personalized real-time schedules for meetings with your congressional delegation on March 13
- Talking points, biographies of Members of Congress, and a map of Capitol Hill
- Leave behind materials
- Day-of-event alerts
- Meeting report back form
- Help desk support
Use the mobile code you received in your pre-event email to access the tool.
Capitol Hill Advocacy Day Briefing
On March 12 at 2:30pm in the Marriott Wardman Park Maryland Suite A, B & C all Capitol Hill Advocacy Day participants must attend a mandatory Advocacy Day briefing. During this session you’ll meet your advocacy team, discuss logistics, review your final schedule, and receive leave behind materials. NLC Federal Advocacy and Soapbox Consulting staff will be on hand to answer any questions. If you cannot attend this event, please email Ashley Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
