As 2019 EMS On The Hill Day approaches, we have received questions regarding your scheduled Hill Day meetings. NAEMT works with a Congressional scheduling firm to schedule your Hill Day appointments with House Representatives and Senators from your state. Your schedule will be provided to you when you sign-in for the Hill Day Briefing on April 9.
Our schedulers are in the process of scheduling your Hill Day meetings. In order to avoid conflicts and confusion, please do NOT schedule your own meetings.
In the next couple of weeks, we will send you additional information about Hill Day, including this year’s requests to Congress.
We look forward to seeing you on the Hill!
