Capitol Hill Visit 2019


It’s that time of year when we need to identify a Key Contact for every chapter for our ACR Capitol Hill Day. The Key Contact serves as the chapter liaison to the ACR's Government Relations team regarding the scheduling of Hill appointments for the Hill Day.

The Congressional Office Contact spreadsheet and other resources to assist with the scheduling of appointments are posted below. The actual scheduling of the appointments will not start until early April.
