Advocacy Leadership Retreat

2020 Advocacy Leadership Retreat

Empowered to Live Yes!

The 2020 Advocacy Leadership Retreat will take place March 9-10, 2020 at the Westin Crystal City in Arlington, VA. 

Together we are empowered to Live Yes! 
You are the expert of your own experience with arthritis. You’ve already proven that your story can move mountains. You relentlessly pursue increased access to care for people living with arthritis.  This event, intended for our most advanced Advocates and Ambassadors over 18 years old, will provide you with education and support to mobilize your community and break down barriers to care.

The Advocacy Leadership Retreat is an event run by volunteers, for volunteers. This special election year gathering will host our top advocacy volunteers from all 50 states to learn, grow, and share experiences as an #AdvocateforArthritis. Featured sessions will include peer-led discussion groups, breakout bonanzas, Ambassador-led poster sessions, and more, all curated by an elite Ambassador Taskforce of your peers. The Advocacy Leadership Retreat is the perfect opportunity to share successes and learn from others to continue moving the needle toward access to care for all people with arthritis.
