Hill Day 2012 at a Glance
Once again this year, IACP worked with Soapbox Consulting, LLC, a D.C.-based company specializing in grassroots advocacy. Soapbox helped to schedule all of IACP’s Member Pharmacist Hill appointments and also conducted a “Being a Good Advocate for Compounding” session. This interactive session provided techniques to successfully convey our position and message to legislators.
The Stats to Date
Although all the debriefing documents are being summarized by our Washington D.C. team, the initial reports from CCH are impressive.
- 126 total participants representing 37 states
- 183 face-to-face meetings scheduled
- 74% of Senate offices scheduled
