Together Affecting Change

Photo of participants in the CANP Lobby DayEvery year CANP shows its strength at the State Capitol by bringing NPs face-to-face with legislators. Join your colleagues in Sacramento for Lobby Day to learn about the coming year’s legislative issues and meet with legislators to help advance CANP’s agenda. This annual event is always exciting and inspirational, leaving nurse practitioner participants empowered to continue the conversation at the local level.

Registration is now open for CANP Lobby
Day 18, taking place May 1 at the Sheraton Grand Sacramento Hotel. View the agenda for 2018.

This year's event begins with an evening Legislative Reception on Monday, April 30, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Sheraton.

Those planning on attending can book hotel accomodations at the Sheraton. CANP's room rate of $215 per night is available for April 28 through May 3. The cutoff date for reservations at the special rate is April 7.

In the meantime, grassroots outreach on the part of CANP members and allies is important year-round – as we say, "Every Day is Lobby Day." Contact Grassroots Coordinator Stephanie Nied Tseu at for assistance in the important task of continuing advocacy outreach efforts throughout the year.
