“Our new Advocacy Summit app is just one of the many great new additions we’ve made to this event,” said NFDA Senior Vice President of Advocacy Lesley Witter, MPA, CAE. “By downloading the app now, attendees can begin preparing for their time in Washington by studying the issues on which they will be advocating and making plans to attend the outstanding continuing education sessions on veterans’ issues and mass-fatality management. After the Advocacy Summit, the app will help all NFDA members stay connected with legislators and urge support of the issues that matter most.”

The NFDA Advocacy Summit mobile application can be downloaded for free from the Apple Store (iPhone and iPad users) or the Google Play Store (Android phone and tablet users); simply search for “NFDA Advocacy.”
