Congressional Visits — “March on the Hill”

On Tuesday, March 14, ROA will sponsor a “March on the Hill” event. ROA NEEDS YOU AT THIS EVENT!  Don’t miss this opportunity to represent ROA on Capitol Hill.


Department National Council Representative

Each department is encouraged to have a Department National Council Member (DNCM) at this meeting. If your elected/appointed Department National Council Member cannot attend, you may appoint a representative (as allowed by your bylaws). To ensure this person will be able to cast a vote on behalf of the Department, you must notify Diane Markham (dmarkham@roa.org) of the substitution at least one week prior to the conference.



ROA does not have a block of rooms reserved. You are welcome to stay wherever you’d like; all arrangements must be made by the individual. Click here for more information and a sampling of nearby hotels.
