Notice about cancellation of
AWHONN on Capitol Hill 2020

AWHONN HQ staff were looking forward to seeing nearly 100 AWHONN members at our annual advocacy day on March 29-31, 2020 in Washington, DC.  Due to the many responses received from members concerning their employers restricting travel, a decision has been made to convert the event this year to a Virtual Hill Day. In addition, House and Senate offices are declining requests for appointments due to concern about COVID-19.

All of those who registered will be issued a refund within 30 days.  We encourage you to contact the Phoenix Park Hotel at (202) 638-6900 to cancel your lodging reservations, and to contact your individual airline to cancel air travel.

We know you are committed to caring for women and babies and acknowledge you need to stay close to home to answer the call. All appointments with your elected officials will be converted to virtual (phone) meetings. Please stay tuned in the upcoming weeks for news about this virtual event and feel free to email staff at with any questions.

On behalf of Becky Cypher, MSN, PNNP, President, the Board of Directors and staff, please accept our sincere thank you for your commitment and dedication to AWHONN.
