ACEP Leadership and Advocacy Conference


The ACEP Board of Directors and ACEP staff have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and the dominoes falling across the world. Knowing how urgently our emergency medicine community is needed to combat this crisis, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our upcoming spring meetings.  This includes the Spring 2020 Leadership and Advocacy Conference in DC.

About the Conference

At the ACEP Leadership & Advocacy Conference,  you will have the opportunity to learn advocacy skills, be exposed to the latest issues facing emergency medicine, and receive updates directly from members of Congress. Additionally, there will be a section focused solely on issues facing residents. You must be involved to help delineate these policy issues unique to residents. You will have the chance to walk across the mall and take an active part in forming healthcare policy. Bring your excitement to learn and your desire to advocate for the rights of patients, residents, and emergency medicine.
