In 2020, plastic surgeons from across the country will be heading to Washington, DC to advocate on behalf of the specialty during the two-day ASPS Regional Fly-In events. The Southeast & West Regional Fly-In will take place on February 4-5, 2020 and the Northeast & Midwest Regional Fly-In on June 10-11, 2020. ASPS members are encouraged to register for the Fly-In for their respective state, however, if they are unable to attend their region's designated Fly-In event they are welcome to register for the alternative Fly-In event.
The ASPS Regional Fly-Ins will be focused only on congressional meetings on Capitol Hill and will not feature the extra day of educational programming that's part of the ASPS Advocacy Summit. The ASPS Regional Fly-Ins will occur in even years – election years – going forward, while the ASPS Advocacy Summit will be held in odd years and is scheduled to return in 2021.
During the ASPS Regional Fly-Ins, ASPS members will:
- Meet with the members of Congress and their staff on Capitol Hill to educate them about critical healthcare policies
- Participate in an exclusive dinner discussion with a prominent member of Congress
- Influence and help shape ASPS's 2021 state and federal policy priorities to help determine the Society's advocacy agenda
- Network with their plastic surgery colleagues and ASPS leadership in the nation's capital
