Important Announcement About the 7th Annual FPA D.C. Advocacy Day
These are extraordinary times and the challenges posed by COVID-19 are forcing everyone to adjust to the new normal where how things have been done in the past is simply not possible now. While we hope things return to a sense of normalcy in the coming months, we are looking at all upcoming planned events to assess how we will be impacted. We have received unfortunate news from our Advocacy Day host hotel (Liaison Washington Capitol Hill Hotel) that they, along with dozens of other hotels in the city, have closed their doors temporarily until this Fall. Unfortunately, this news coupled with the continued guidance from the CDC, WHO and federal government means FPA D.C. Advocacy Day is cancelled.
We are sorry to share this news with you, but FPA's first priority is the health, safety and well-being of our members and everyone involved with our events. Despite the disappointment and impact we know you will feel, please know this decision was not made lightly. If you have any questions, please contact Josephine Collacci at JCollacci@OneFPA.org or Ben Lewis at BLewis@OneFPA.org. A communication will be sent directly to those individuals who already registered to attend.

"It is a great opportunity to speak with our representatives. Everyone should try to attend at least once."
