Discount Deadline Near for CHA/AHA Joint Advocacy Program

Register now to receive early bird discount rate

The discount deadline for the annual federal policy event has been extended. CHA encourages hospital leaders to register before the March 1 early bird deadline to receive substantial savings.

This year, CHA will combine its federal advocacy event for members — formerly known as the California Congressional Action Program — with the American Hospital Association’s (AHA) Annual Membership Meeting, April 7-10 in Washington, DC. The combined programs maximize hospital leaders’ time and investment for just one fee.

American Hospital Association Program

The AHA meeting will feature excellent opportunities to meet with colleagues from around the country, hear from nationally recognized health policy leaders, and prepare messages for policy makers. Details of the meeting, including registration, can be found here.

California-Specific Events

California Caucus — CHA will continue to host the California Caucus on April 9 to prepare hospital leaders for visits with the California congressional delegation. As before, CHA staff will schedule appointments and ensure participants are well prepared to meet with elected officials and their staffs. 

Social Networking Event — CHA and the Regional Associations will host a reception for program participants the evening of Monday, April 8. The California Hospital Association Political Action Committee will hold its annual dinner for Presidents’ Club members following the reception. 

Special Discount for California’s Hospitals

In recognition of the blending of the AHA and CHA meetings, AHA is offering a special discount to California’s hospitals that are not currently AHA members. Non-AHA members can use the promotional code discb19 to receive the member registration rate.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with a link to book a room at the host hotel, the Marriot Marquis, at the AHA rate. When making travel plans, note that the AHA program begins on April 7 with several executive briefings, and congressional visits will wrap up the afternoon of April 10.

Questions can be directed to Anne O’Rourke, CHA senior vice president, federal relations and advocacy, or Nicole Hoffman, CHA federal relations assistant.
