entpacboothWith the AAO-HNSF 2015 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPOSM approaching, now is the time to learn more about advocacy-related programming available at the upcoming meeting in Dallas. Similar to last year’s meeting, the presence of two legislative advocacy booths will provide attendees with greater access to information regarding the Academy’s legislative, political, and grassroots programs. The legislative advocacy booths will be easily accessible in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center near Lobby D (level 2) and outside the Omni Dallas Hotel’s Dallas Ballroom.

Stop by one (or both) of the booths to learn more about our various program offerings and to:

  • Receive updates on bills impacting your practice and your patients.
  • Join the ENT Advocacy Network for timely updates on political and legislative issues impacting the specialty and a free subscription to a biweekly e-Newsletter, The ENT Advocate.
  • Volunteer to be a “state tracker” for the specialty.
  • Learn how to schedule local meetings with your legislators via the Academy’s “I-GO” program.
  • Obtain information on becoming a 2015 ENT PAC Investor* and help celebrate the PAC’s 20th anniversary!

In recognition of our 2015 PAC Investors and advocacy leaders, the ENT PAC Board of Advisors and staff have also scheduled various events during the meeting. Please mark your calendars to join these events.
