Where will the Radiology Lobby Day at the Capitol be held?
Commonwealth Strategy Group
118 N 8th Street | Richmond, VA 23219
What's the schedule of events on our lobby day?
Please plan to join us from 7:30 a.m. until about noon. We will start with a brief organizational session and breakfast at Commonwealth Strategy Group, our lobbyist's office, before going over to the General Assembly Building. Lara Knowles, Chapter Coordinator, will set up appointments with your legislators, where possible.
How should I prepare for our Lobby Day?
VCACR lobbyist, James Pickral, will provide background information for bills pertinent to our society. Don't forget to bring your white coat to wear while lobbying and a supply of business cards to hand out to legislators and their aides.
Why should I leave behind my busy practice to come to Richmond to lobby?
As the saying goes, if you're in medicine, you're in politics. Members of the General Assembly need to hear from YOU, their constituents, about how the legislation they're considering will affect the practice of medicine - from setting Medicaid payment rates, protecting Virginia's positive liability climate, to ensuring quality patient care. Speak up, get involved!
The leadership of the Virginia Chapter, ACR believes that it is essential for the Chapter to continue to participate in legislative discussions involving health care delivery in Virginia. To help maintain a vocal presence during the 2020 Session, all members of the VCACR are encouraged to join us on WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 2020 for Radiology Lobby Day at the Capitol. The VCACR's Day at the Capitol gives Chapter members the opportunity to tell their delegates and senators about the challenges facing the practice of medicine and Virginia's health care system.
