Attendance for WHA’s Advocacy Day on March 23 has topped 500, with one month to go until the highly anticipated event. The virtual event platform being used for the event, LeaderPass, opened to all registered attendees on Feb. 23. Attendees are encouraged to log into the site prior to the live Advocacy Day event to familiarize themselves with the platform.
"Resources and content have been added to the event site for attendees to explore, providing an opportunity for participants to familiarize themselves with the platform early," said WHA Vice President of Advocacy Kari Hofer. "We plan to roll out more resources as we get closer to March 23 to help prepare advocates for the day," Hofer added.
An email is sent to all registered attendees with instructions for creating a LeaderPass account. For questions about Advocacy Day or for instructions to create a LeaderPass account, contact WHA staff at 608-274-1820.
