The two-day event begins with a training on Monday, April 28 to prepare attendees for visits with their Members of Congress. The training will provide resources, talking points, and answers to questions that Congressional staffers may have about programs related to people living with HIV/AIDS. The Positive Leadership Award Reception follows that evening and is a time to recognize outstanding leadership and service to people living with HIV. Meetings with Congressional offices will take place throughout the day on Tuesday, April 29, and will be scheduled by regional/state coordinators.

All participants are provided with training on:

  • current science
  • legislative agendas
  • conducting effective meetings with their elected representatives
