Policy Summit

2017 Policy Summit

The Policy Summit is the annual convening of ASTHO’s policy committees, which set the organization's policy agenda. This year's Policy Summit agenda reflects several changes and will include strategic discussions among key organizations and agencies, followed by a keynote luncheon and policy committee programming. The Policy Summit is open to committee members and invited speakers only.


About the ASTHO Policy Summit

The Policy Summit co-convenes ASTHO’s policy committees to:

  • Set the policy strategy for the next 12 months.
  • Unite policy committees to tackle cross-cutting issues, such as public health’s approach to the opioid crisis.
  • Leverage the work of policy committees to inform the Government Relations Committee, ASTHO Board, and full membership and to direct ASTHO's priorities, initiatives, and events.
  • Facilitate networking among state and territorial public health leaders.

The 2017 Policy Summit is a full day meeting, with the 75th
Anniversary Gala held that evening. The Annual Meeting begins the following day, Wednesday, September 20th through Thursday, September 21st. All events will take place at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C.
