Together Affecting Change
CANP Lobby Day 17 takes place May 8 in Sacramento. Register today and join more than 150 nurse practitioners from around the state to add your voice to the chorus in support of your profession.
The importance of educating and establishing relationships with state lawmakers is amplified this year, given that the 2016 elections resulted in 31 new members – more than one-fourth of the entire legislature – who will likely be in office for the next 12 years.
In addition, Lobby Day participants will also have the opportunity to make the case for Assembly Bill 1560, a CANP-sponsored measure intended to modify the physician supervision ratio, and Senate Bill 554, a bill that would allow NPs to work without physician supervision in underserved areas.
In order for CANP's staff and legislative advocacy team to facilitate scheduling of legislative office visits, online registration for Lobby Day closes on Tuesday, May 2. However, onsite registration on the day of the event will be available at a cost of $50.
Be on the lookout for additional program details as they evolve, including the presentation of CANP's annual Advocate of the Year Award.
