Capitol Hill Day Volunteer Hub
NPF’s Capitol Hill Day Committee Members are here to serve as peer guides for event attendees and provide unique attendee feedback to NPF staff throughout the planning process. As we get closer to the event, they will provide training tips and be available for questions.
The 2021 Capitol Hill Day will be held in a virtual format with 75 participants! Due to the larger size of this event and the flexibility gained through the virtual format, Hill meetings will be held across two dates. Please review the below map to identify which day your meetings will be.
Early April: Attendee Social Hour
While we wish we could all catch up in the hotel lobby before the training dinner, things are a bit different this year. The Capitol Hill Day Committee is planning a social hour to provide the same opportunity as the ‘lobby time’ we would normally have.
April 17: Virtual Training Session
Beginning at 1 p.m. est. / 10 a.m. pst.
The session will last4 hours, including built-in breaks.
April 20 or 21: Virtual Hill Meetings
Meetings will be held between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. est. (see image below for the regional timeline.)
West Coast groups will start a bit later, but should plan to be available as early as 7 a.m. pst.
In the weeks leading up to Capitol Hill Day, this section will be updated with training resources specific to the “asks” that you will talk about with members of Congress. In the meantime, make sure to familiarize yourself with NPF’s policy priorities, the legislative process and crafting your story.
