Legislative Fly-In
Wednesday June 10, 2015
ARM’s Legislative Fly-In commences the morning following the Annual Dinner. Last year's Legislative Fly-In included participation from 70+ ARM members from 22 different state delegations, the most in the event's history. We hope to build off that success and continue to engage both new ARM members as well as members of Congress to continue to expand our legislative impact. Each participant will be assigned to a group based on state/districts and will meet with key members of Congress and Administration officials to describe the immense near-term potential of advanced therapies and the need for legislation that supports the development of life saving treatments.

**If you participate in the Fly-In, please plan to stay for the full day (9am - 5pm) or else let Laura Parsons know of your limited schedule immediately. Participants will have Congressional meetings scheduled for them all the way until 5pm and canceling meetings with members of Congress at the last minute due to unknown travel changes reflects negatively on the organization.

Registration includes attendance at ARM's Annual Dinner and preceding Cocktail Reception as well as the Legislative Fly-In the following day. It is essential that ARM members register to attend the Fly-In by May 8 to be eligible for personalized Congressional schedules. Those who register after that date will still be placed with an existing delegation depending on their home/work Congressional Delegates, however, individualized schedules may no longer be available.
