ADVOCACY SPOTLIGHT


the importance of the ASCA process and the importance of involvement of all out- patient surgery centers, including admin- istrators and physician owners. I would like to participate again in the future.” ASCA hosts a National Advocacy Day each year. If you are interested in visiting your members of Congress in 2018, please contact Danielle Kaster at dkaster@ascassociation.org or 703.345.0260.


National ASC Week and Facility Tours Each August, the ASC community cel- ebrates National ASC Week. During this week, ASCs open their doors to the public and elected officials to pro- mote awareness of the industry and the services they provide. Facility tours offer a unique ‘hands-on’ experience for key policymakers.


In 2017, more than 65 ASCs


hosted facility tours for their congres- sional leaders. More than half of those 65 members of Congress then went on to cosponsor ASC legislation. This year, National ASC Week is August 7–11. If you would like to par- ticipate or host a facility tour, please contact Danielle Kaster at dkaster@ ascassociation.org or 703.345.0260.


Danielle Kaster is the grassroots and


political affairs manager at ASCA. Write her at dkaster@ascassociation.org.
