About Legislative Action Day

Hone your advocacy skills at TAFP's Legislative Action Day. If you are coming to Austin for Interim Session or the C. Frank Webber Lectureship, plan to arrive a day early for advocacy training and to advance the agenda of family medicine. The 83rd Texas Legislature is underway and family physicians must stand together and advocate for policies that support and protect your practice and your patients. TAFP’s lobby team will brief attendees on current issues and provide you with resources and talking points. After lunch, you'll walk over to the Capitol to visit with your legislators on your own or with other physicians from your voting district. We encourage you to contact your legislators ahead of time and schedule an appointment.

If you need assistance scheduling an appointment, contact Samantha White at swhite@tafp.org or (512) 329-8666 ext. 16. To find out who represents you, go to www.fyi.legis.state.tx.us/Home.aspx.


Online registration is now open.

If you have any questions about registration, contact Juleah Williams at jwilliams@tafp.org or (512) 329-8666 ext. 35.
