ASRM passes along the following information from the AMA:
As a reminder spaces are still available for the 2017 AMPAC Campaign School that will be taking place Oct. 27-29 at the AMA Office in Washington, DC. The school is targeted to AMA members, their spouses, residents, medical students and medical society staff who want to become more involved in the campaign process.
Running an effective campaign can be the difference between winning and losing a race. That’s why the AMPAC Campaign School is designed to give you the skills and strategic approach you will need out on the campaign trail. Our team of political experts will teach you everything you need to know to run a successful campaign or be a sought-after volunteer.
During the two and a half day in-person portion of the program under the direction of our political experts, participants will be broken into campaign staff teams to run a simulated congressional campaign using what they’ve learned from the pre-school workbook activities and videos along with the group sessions on strategy, vote targeting, social media, advertising and more.
There are still spaces available but hurry - deadline to register is September 8!
NOTE: Faculty, materials (including the pre-school workbooks, videos and all in-person meeting materials) and all meals during the meeting are covered by AMPAC. Participants are responsible for the registration fee ($350 for AMA Members, Alliance Members, State Medical Society Staff and spouses/ $1000 for non-members), airfare, and hotel accommodations at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill (AMA has secured a room block for a discounted rate). The registration fee is waived for residents and students, however, space is limited to four slots and the AMPAC Board will review and select qualified participants from the pool of resident and student applicants.
