Cell & Gene Congressional Fly-In

Please join us June 7-8, 2022, for ARM’s annual Congressional Fly-In as we come together to represent the cell and gene therapy sector to policymakers on Capitol Hill! We are pleased to return to in-person meetings, and to give our members the opportunity to share the sector’s promise and priorities with the Representatives and Senators who represent your districts and states. Your voices are critical to ensuring that policymakers understand the unique nature of these therapies and the policies needed to deliver them to patients.

Upon your arrival in Washington on June 7, please join us for a private member dinner with special guests. On June 8, the lobby day will kick off with a breakfast on Capitol Hill with invited Members of Congress. Following a day of meetings with Members of Congress and their staff, attend a reception with Congressional staff, ARM leaders, sector colleagues, and other stakeholders.

The Congressional Fly-In is a unique opportunity to showcase the collective promise of our sector, educate influential policymakers, and demonstrate why cell and gene therapy is the future of medicine.
