Indianapolis, IN - The American Alliance of Orthopaedic Executives (AAOE) is proud to announce our summer Capitol Hill Series webinar program. This free advocacy series is designed to get AAOE members, their staffs, and physicians excited about AAOE's upcoming Capitol Hill Day and provide them with tools to be the best advocates for their practices and their profession.

This series is designed for all members, even if you aren't planning to attend AAOE's Capitol Hill Day. In fact, not attending Capitol Hill Day is even more of a reason to attend! The information presented will help you influence public policy whether you're in DC, your state capitol, or your city council chambers. Our goal is to provide you with the confidence and knowledge you need to be your own best advocate.

  • Module One "Public Policy and You" covers what public policy is, how it's created, and how it affects an orthopaedic practice managers, with an emphasis on the role that practice managers can play in altering/enacting policy changes. Healthcare is changing, understand how that change affects you and what you can do about it!
  • Module Two "Why You Should Advocate" covers the who, what, when, why, and how of effective advocacy and its application on and off Capitol Hill. Attendees will learn why they have to be their own best advocate rather than relying on someone else. We'll also offer alternatives to attending AAOE's Capitol Hill Day for those that can't make it to DC in September.
  • Module Three "What Does Participation Look Like?" covers Capitol Hill Day from the inside. Hear from previous attendees about their experiences and why the event isn't as scary or esoteric as it sounds.

Being an advocate for your profession is an important aspect of your job. If you don't take care of the threats facing your organization, who will? But participation isn't just good for business; it's also important for the health of our democracy. The first amendment guarantees the ability to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and just like when you learned French for that trip to Quebec in college, if you don't use it, you lose it.

Democracy respects active engagement more than virtue alone. We owe it to our country, our families, our friends, etc. to be active engagers in public policy. Your first step to active engagement and taking public policy out of the bureaucrats' hands and putting it into your own, starts with this series. Register today.
