Day off the Hill

May 11

Registration is underway for Day off the Hill on May 11! As it did in 2020, ENA is going fully virtual to deliver the same high-quality advocacy training ENA offers every year.

Register today and join your ENA peers and colleagues to learn how to enhance your advocacy efforts and plan virtual meetings with legislators.


Day off the Hill

When: May 11

Day off the Hill prepares ENA advocates to conduct virtual meetings and conference calls to discuss ENA’s priority issues with their members of Congress, regardless of the platform, format or setting.

Once registered, all attendees are encouraged to contact their members of the House of Representatives to schedule phone or virtual meetings for May 12-14 so you can put into action what you learned during Day off the Hill. More information on meeting scheduling will be provided to registered attendees.

State Government Affairs Chair should contact their respective senators’ offices to schedule meetings. Chairs will be responsible for coordinating with Day off the Hill attendees to ensure those meetings are adequately attended.

When: May 12
