Registration Open for Annual Federal Advocacy Program in Washington, D.C.
New this year: Congressional district days in June

CHA encourages hospital executives to attend its annual federal advocacy program, the California Congressional Action Program (CCAP), May 1–4 in Washington, D.C. Held in conjunction with the American Hospital Association’s annual membership meeting, CCAP is an opportunity to collectively advocate on behalf of California hospitals with federal lawmakers. As Congress faces continued pressure to reduce spending, it is crucial that hospitals work together to protect access to health care services in California by creating a strong presence in Washington, D.C.

For more information about CCAP and to register, visit To facilitate the scheduling of appointments, members are asked to register by April 1. Separate registration is required for the AHA meeting; for more information visit

To expand federal advocacy efforts, CHA is also offering members an opportunity to meet directly with Congressional representatives in their California district offices during the week of June 1–3.
