The ACS 2022 Leadership & Advocacy Summit was held as a hybrid event April 2–5 in Washington, DC. The Leadership & Advocacy Summit offers comprehensive and specialized sessions to provide ACS members, leaders, and advocates with topics focused on effective surgeon leadership, as well as interactive advocacy training and coordinated virtual visits with Congressional offices.

Leadership Summit

The Leadership Summit is open to ACS members and non-members in the United States and internationally. The Advocacy Summit is only open to U.S./domestic ACS members because the content is not applicable to international members.
