AACS SPRING
LEADERS SUMMIT/
CAPITOL HILL DAY
BY GARY SCHLEUGER

KIM SEIDL/SHUTTERSOCK.COM

A

ACS thanks you in advance
for your participation in the
2018 School Leaders Summit
& Capitol Hill Day at the
Omni Shoreham Hotel in
Washington, D.C. Taking
place April 12th, 2018 Capitol Hill Day is a
significant component of AACS' ongoing
advocacy efforts and political outreach at
the federal level. Your institution's active
involvement in Capitol Hill Day - along with
students, alumni, employers and partners -
is crucial in our efforts to ENLIGHTEN
Congress and the Trump Administration
about the great benefits our schools provide to thousands of students each year.
We want to make sure that all participants have the opportunity to voice
concerns and influence our government
representatives. Capitol Hill Day will
include valuable pre-sessions and training opportunities featuring experienced
government affairs advocates, policy
experts, Members of Congress and key
staffers. These special sessions will be
designed to enhance your advocacy skills
and knowledge of federal higher education
policy, and to provide up-to-date insights
into current political and policy developments affecting our schools and students.
Retired U.S. Congressman George Miller
of California will be a featured presenter
at the pre-Hill Day event. He has served
as a Democratic U.S. Representative for
40 years beginning in 1975 (District 7
1975-2013; District 11 2013-2015). During
his tenure, he sponsored or co-sponsored
over 7,000 bills while serving on House
and Senate Committees for Education and
the Workforce, Energy and Commerce and
many others.1 This Capitol Hill Day presents an education opportunity that benefits
our schools and industry. Attendees will

find this invaluable information a must to
take back to their staff and students about
commitment, involvement and advocacy.
Our AACS staff and consultants will
also work with you in scheduling meetings, assisting with logistics and providing
materials to facilitate your discussions.
While you are in Washington, D.C. for the
Leaders' Summit, we urge you to meet with
your Congressional delegation and make
your voice heard - ultimately, that is what
Capitol Hill Day is all about.
To locate your Senators and
Congressional representative, here are

representatives, or call the U.S. Capitol
Switchboard at 202-224-3121. Know the
name of your representative prior to calling. Visit your representatives' websites to
learn about how best to connect with them.

Do your research in advance. Make sure
you have thought about "your own story"
and what you want to communicate to
your government officials. The Capitol Hill
Day preview session will help you to focus
your message since time is valuable. When
in Washington, D.C., prepare to do some
walking (mostly outside), bring a camera
to capture those photo opportunities to
take back to your school and community.
Remember to smile!
But there is more! For the full Spring
Leaders Summit experience, begin the
event by attending The Legal Workshop on
Monday. Our Spring Summit Committee
has implemented many of the members'
survey recommendations. All class offerings and flow have been coordinated to
provide a holistic presentation of best
practices for all school operations and
functions that support our students
and staff.
