VACEP’s legislative agenda is successful when members participate in the process!
A community of empowered emergency physicians know their legislators and communicate with them before they are required to vote on any matter.
- If you do not know who your legislators are, find out now! Go to the Virginia General Assembly website to find your legislator.
- Look and see which committees your legislators are assigned. VACEP will send alerts to emergency physicians for whom we have an email address, when your legislator is voting in committee on bills we are actively pursuing. Contact information for all House and Senate members is also found on the Virginia General Assembly website.
- Get detailed information on Virginia’s legislative and political process that will help you be a successful citizen advocate. For more information visit the Virginia General Assembly Citizen’s Guide.
