Other obligations prevented me from attending LEGISLATIVE CONFERENCE 2017. I see that as an unfortunate circumstance, as it would have been well worth my while to use that opportunity to visit with my legislators and thank them for their support of the Safe VA Care initiative. Besides the chance to visit with one’s Congressional members and their staffs, the conference offers other circumstances to benefit the physician anesthesiologist. Before the conference starts, ASA consistently schedules oneof its Leadership Spokesperson Training programs. These seminars are excellent introductions for physician anesthesiologists and other ASA members to improve their skills at speaking in public to legislators and the media.
