2. Book your hotel room
Hill Day workshops and the Advocacy Leadership Reception will take place at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland, while your meetings with elected officials will take place in the congressional office buildings on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Begin by booking your room online.
NOTE: if you are attending ONLY Hill Day, we encourage you to book your room at the Westin. As of early February, there are still a number of rooms available at the Westin for Tuesday and Wednesday night – perfect for folks who will only be in town for the May 7th Hill Day events.
3. Contact your State Captain to start planning your meetings with your Senators and Representatives
Each state has a State Captain who will be your point of contact and who will coordinate the Hill visits for you and your fellow attendees from your state.
- In some states, the State Captain will set up all Hill visits and notify attendees so they can RSVP.
- In other states, attendees schedule their own meetings and notify the State Captain so that he or she can help other attendees know which meetings to attend.
- Either way, please reach out to your State Captain to let them know you’re coming to Hill Day and learn how the process will work. You’ll find details on how to contact your State Captain in your registration profile once you’ve registered for Hill Day.
For those who are setting up their own meetings, the National Council has put together a guide to assist you in scheduling appointments with your elected officials. If you don’t know who your elected officials are, click here to find out.
