Description

In order to accurately represent their district or state on a variety of issues, elected officials rely on thorough staff work, outside expertise and, most importantly, constituent input. Legislators need and want to hear from you. This session will provide foundational information on becoming an effective advocate, including an update on the pressing issues facing Congress and policymakers, how the November midterm elections might impact hospitals and health systems, best practices for establishing and nurturing relationships with elected officials, and how to share your organization’s story for maximum effect.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Understand contemporary elected officials’ impact on professional and health care fields.

2.) Explore current and historic political influences on elected officials’ actions and the elections that select these officials, and how that impacts the hospital and health care field.

3.) Identify important items to discuss with elected officials in specific areas of legislation and regulation that impact the health care field.

4.) Establish short- and long-term relationships with elected officials and staff, including positioning as a field expert and trusted source of information.

Speaker(s):

  • Erik Rasmussen, Vice President of the Advocacy & Public Policy Group, Federal Relations Department, American Hospital Association
