Advocacy Day

You are invited to the Statehouse in Montpelier to meet the 2023 class of legislators and to use your voice to advocate for health care policies to improve your practice environment. This is a unique opportunity early in the new legislative session to let lawmakers know how they can help address the pressing issues you and your patients are facing. You are invited to attend in-person for all or some of our advocacy activities, including:

  • 2-3pm: Advocacy Know-How: Learn more about the 2023 VMS Policy Priorities and how to engage your lawmakers on these topics
  • 3-4pm: Observe Statehouse Committee Work: Observe Legislative Committees at work discussing issues relevant to your practice and patients (with possible limited opportunities to testify)
  • 4-6pm: Legislative Reception in Cafeteria: Invite your lawmakers to attend our reception "Health Care Crisis: Steps to Ensure the Survival of Medicine in Vermont"

Please reach out to Jill with any questions at
