President Abraham Lincoln Hotel & Conference Center, Springfield, IL

RSVP Online Now

Plan to join fellow members and ICEP’s lobbyists in Springfield to meet with state legislators to lobby for emergency medicine issues.

The program will start with a Legislative Reception hosted by ICEP on Wednesday evening, where legislators and their staff are invited to network with ICEP members in a relaxed setting. On Thursday, participants will have breakfast and attend a briefing with ICEP’s lobbyist.

At the conclusion of the morning program, the group will walk to the state capitol to visit legislators. Members may make appointments with their legislators but should note that many legislators’ offices do not take appointments and prefer drop-in visits.

There is no charge to attend ICEP Advocacy Day for all ICEP members, but advance registration is required.
