To celebrate 10 years of success on Capitol Hill, members of the United States Congress – especially those who are physicians – have been invited to join 2011-2012 SVS Political Action Committee (PAC) contributors at an exclusive reception in Washington, D.C.
“The success of the SVS PAC is due to forward-thinking SVS members who have generously donated funds,” said SVS PAC Committee Chair Carlo Dall’Olmo, MD. “This has provided SVS with a voice in Congress. The 10-year anniversary reception is a unique opportunity for vascular surgeons to meet and network with legislators.”
The invitation-only Capitol Hill event will be held from 5:30 pm until 7:00 pm on Wednesday, June 6 in Room 340B of the Rayburn House Office Building located on Independence Avenue and South Capitol Street in Washington, D.C. Round trip bus transportation will be provided for Vascular Annual Meeting® attendees from Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in National Harbor, MD. Chartered buses will depart at 4:45 pm from Gaylord National’s Maryland Ballroom bus loop located on the ballroom level (level 2). Upon entry into the federal office building, all guests will be required to pass through a magnetometer.
To participate in this first-ever event, simply make a contribution to the PAC. The donation form appears on the SVS website. Donations can also be submitted through the mail or faxed using a credit card.
