Save the Date: 2019 ASCRS/Alliance of Specialty Medicine Legislative Fly-In Scheduled for July 15–17

ASCRS is pleased to announce that the 2019 Alliance of Specialty Medicine Legislative Fly-In has been scheduled for July 15–17 in Washington, D.C.

ASCRS and ASOA members who are selected to attend the Fly-In will receive in-depth training on policy issues important to ophthalmology and the specialty medicine community—and will have the opportunity to meet with their Representative and Senators to lobby for those legislative issues.

Not familiar with the Fly-In? See what past attendees have to say about the experience in this brief video.

Because of its increased popularity and the rising costs associated with the Fly-In, we will reimburse up to a maximum of $1,000 in travel expenses. Additionally, we have limited space, so participants will be selected in order to ensure maximum geographic representation for our Capitol Hill meetings.

The complete agenda is still being developed, but attendees are asked to arrive in Washington by Monday afternoon, July 15, and not depart until Wednesday afternoon, July 17, following conclusion of the conference.

If you are interested in attending the 2019 Fly-In, please complete this form at your earliest convenience. We understand that you need advance notice to arrange your schedule, so you will be notified ASAP when your participation is confirmed and provided with additional details to make your travel arrangements.
