Save the date for AOA on Capitol Hill, the AOA's single-largest annual advocacy event in our nation's capital.

April 14 - 16, 2024
J.W. Marriott
Washington, D.C.

AOA on Capitol Hill is the AOA's single-largest annual advocacy event in Washington, D.C., directly connecting optometry's advocates and leaders with our nation's policy leaders to advance optometric eye health and vision care for the benefit of all Americans. Our annual hill day is a key reason why the AOA is consistently recognized as one of the most effective, respected advocacy organizations in the nation's capital with hundreds of doctors, optometry students and affiliate leaders participating in this 3-day fly-in to deliver optometry's priorities.

AOA on Capitol Hill participation is open to all advocacy-minded AOA member doctors and students with plenary sessions, breakouts and briefings intended to prepare attendees to get involved in the advocacy fight for optometry's future. Additionally, attendees may have the opportunity, in close coordination with their affiliates, to participate in meetings with their members of Congress and staff.
