This year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hosting a virtual Washington Representatives Retreat on Wednesday, Nov. 18 to Friday, Nov. 20 from 1:30 – 4:30 p.m. ET each day. This year the themes and topics include a Deep Dive into Relevant Policy Issues, Planning for 2021 and Beyond, Health Equity, and Communications and Advocacy Processes in the Virtual New World.

This annual retreat is geared to public policy and government relations professionals from NHC Voluntary Health Agencies and nonprofit organizations and offers an opportunity to discuss major policy developments, provide input on the NHC’s 2021 priorities, and network with colleagues. We hope that you can join us for what will be a productive and informative retreat!
