Current Assignment

  • Visit your member of Congress in their district office or at a Town Hall during August Recess and ask them to co-sponsor H.R. 460 and attend the tentative September 9th briefing.
  • Already a co-sponsor?  Ask them to attend the tentative September 9th briefing and thank them for their support.  The invitation will be posted on this website once a place and time are confirmed.  An e-mail will be sent to all Ambassadors when the Advocacy and Access team receives an invitation.
  • How do you know if your Member is a co-sponsor? Check the list here.
  • Contact Laura Keivel (lkeivel@arthritis.org) when you schedule a meeting or a town hall.  There may be other Ambassadors or staff in the area that can join you!
  • Do NOT report your assingment in the reporting center until it is complete.
