Lobby Day ’07: Registration Deadline is Friday
Join us in Washington, D.C. on May 14-15 for the CFIDS Association of America’s 15th Annual Lobby Day events. Find all the details and a link to our Registration Form at http://www.cfids.org/advocacy/lobby-day.asp
Each year, participants tell us that they feel informed, empowered and engaged as a result of their participation. For some, it’s their first chance to meet other CFS patients and sharing common experiences builds lasting relationships. For others, the chance to join with fellow advocates in a meaningful activity gives them a sense of power and control, making up for some of the losses experienced as a result of CFS.
Progress in research, increased media visability and the opportunity to educate new people in Congress will energize our delegation. We’ll train you, provide all the materials you need, and book your appointments with members of Congress and staff. We promise you’ll learn a lot and have fun, too!
The deadline for registration is Friday, April 20, so we hope to hear from you soon that you’ll be joining us on Capitol Hill. The group rate for hotel accommodations also expires on April 20, so please act quickly.
Whether you have CFS, or you advocate on behalf of a family member or friend with CFS, you can make a difference!
