“Insider” Keynote Speaker
Journalist Reid Wilson, an “insider’s insider,” will share spot-on exclusive political and elections analysis in a “Politics Politics Politics!” keynote presentation on June 15. A correspondent for The Hill newspaper and former editor-in-chief of National Journal’s “The Hotline,” Reid is a frequent political fixture on C-SPAN and the major radio and cable news outlets, offering unique nonpartisan insight and analysis using visual presentations and statistics.
Convenient Virtual Format
While we cannot meet in person with Congressional offices this year, you can share your real-life insights directly to your Federal representatives through an easy-to-use online Zoom platform—all from the comfort of your office or home! Meetings will be set up for you by expert schedulers based on your state and Congressional district. PHCC staff and online vendors will provide two opportunities prior to your meetings to familiarize you with the platform and address any concerns you may have.
This new virtual advocacy conference will provide the same level of value as the traditional in-person PHCC Legislative Conference, with some additional advantages. In fact, reviews from our counterparts in other industry associations indicate that members of Congress and their staff actually had more time to talk to them and had significantly fewer distractions than when they are in person Capitol Hill during a session of Congress. Because you won’t be traveling, you will be able to participate in the online meetings as you would any other commitment during the course of your workday. And with fewer advocacy groups holding meetings right now, your voice will carry extra weight in Washington!
Register now for the PHCC 2021 VIRTUAL Legislative Conference and take advantage of this critical opportunity to have your voice heard! Registration is open to members and non-members of PHCC. Early bird registration ends May 22.
