    Join your PA and student colleagues as AAPA offers its premier Leadership and Advocacy Summit (LAS), March 8-10 at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, Arlington, Va.

    The event kicks off with a full day dedicated to federal advocacy and afternoon visits on Capitol Hill.  The remainder of the event includes sessions focused on advancing Optimal Team Practice, advocacy skill-building, and best practices for constituent organization leaders.

    Space is limited, and this conference is expected to reach capacity.

    Register today!

    LAS provides a fantastic opportunity for PAs to network — with generous break times and a welcome reception, attendees will have ample time to meet old friends and emerging leaders, exchange ideas, and enjoy our Nation’s Capital.

    First-time attendees often comment that LAS is one of the most important skill-building events they attend as it provides them with an understanding of current issues facing the profession and how they can make positive change. Please contact us if we can answer any questions or provide guidance as you prepare for this event.

    This program is not yet approved for CME credit. Conference organizers plan to request 12 hours of AAPA Category 1 CME credit from the AAPA Review Panel.
