The DC weather may have been cold and brisk but the DC meetings were warm and friendly. AANC had a record turnout with members attending NAA's Advocate Conference. There was such a great showing at the lobby day meetings that offices and conference rooms were often over crowded (some meetings had to be conducted in hallways). Logistics on Capital Hill is always an issue but both North Carolina Senators made it a priority to have a photo taken with our members.
If you didn't attend the event this year you should plan on (and budget for) attending next year. Advocate 2020 will be on March 10 - 11, 2020.
