In 2014, more than 150 ASCA members from 20 states directly lobbied their members of Congress and congressional staff in support of key ASC legislation. Due to the ASCA's member's visits and tenacity, more than 30 legislators have cosponsored important ASC legislation.

The next Capitol Fly-In Program will be held in 2015; dates to come soon.

At the 2015 ASCA Capitol Fly-In, you will learn about the issues affecting ASCs and the legislative process, and then spend the day on Capitol Hill meeting with your legislators and their staff. At the next fly-in event, you will be trained by industry experts before you arrive in D.C. and during an intensive 2-hour session the preceding night. The event includes dinner on Tuesday and lunch and breakfast Wednesday. Also, on Tuesday evening after dinner, ASCAPAC is hosting a VIP Monument by Moonlight Tour celebrating ASCAPAC and Advocacy Fund contributors.

Event times are not set in stone, but plan to arrive no later than 4pm on Tuesday and leave no earlier than 6pm on Wednesday. You are responsible for your flight and hotel.
