Advocacy at a Glance

October 26, 2012

Advocacy at a Glance offers you the bullet point summary of current advocacy issues associated with the goals of the Alliance for a Stronger FDA.

  • Alliance Holds Multiple Meetings with House and Senate Staffers.   While Members of Congress are out campaigning, October can be a quiet time for many staffers and it is a good time to have thoughtful meetings. This past week, the Alliance met with more than a dozen Hill offices and key staffers to talk about FDA appropriations and sequester.
  • When Are We Going Back?  We will be back on the Hill on November 14th and 15th.  This past week, about ten Alliance members participated in various meetings over the course of two days.  Let us know if you are interested in participating on the 14th and 15th.
  • The Alliance Is All-a-Twitter.  That’s right — you can now get updates from the Alliance on Twitter.  Our handle is @strengthenfda.  After only a few days, we have 33 followers. Please sign up and help us get to over 100 by our next Friday update.
  • Election Re-Cap and Annual Meeting.  Please put on your schedules the date of November 13th at 10:00 a.m.  We will have a team of legislative experts from Akin Gump present on the results of the November election, and then will have our annual meeting.
