ACC’s Legislative Conference 2021 Moving to All Virtual
ACC’s Legislative Conference 2021, scheduled for Oct. 3-5, is moving to an all-virtual experience. With the continued surge of COVID-19 across the U.S. and new travel restrictions being imposed by some health care institutions, the difficult decision was made to move the live portion of the meeting to the virtual stage. The virtual conference will continue as scheduled, complete with opportunities to hear from ACC leaders, staff and other experts on health policy issues impacting the profession. Planning for virtual congressional visits was already underway given ongoing U.S. Capitol restrictions, and those visits will continue as planned on Oct. 5. Learn more and get answers to questions about the virtual experience, here. Registration for the conference is still open – save your spot now!
