We invite you to join us at the 2018 Advocate Leadership Summit in Washington, DC, April 28 - May 1, at the Renaissance Capital View hotel. The Summit is filled with the speakers, topics, skill building, message training and strategic planning that energize us for the important work in the year ahead. On Tuesday, May 1, 2018 we will once again host a Lobby Day on Capitol Hill.



At the 2018 Advocate Leadership Summit, we will continue to build on the considerable strengths of leaders and visionaries who are working at every level to achieve Breast Cancer Deadline 2020®.




The registration fee for this year’s Summit is $350: This entitles you to three days of outstanding programming, Summit materials, breakfast, lunches and refreshment breaks, as well as breakfast, lunch and transportation on Lobby Day. This does not include hotel lodging. Advocates will participate in the full range of sessions, plenaries, keynotes, strategy workshops, public policy training and Lobby Day. Please note that there is no charge for participating in Lobby Day, even if you aren’t able to attend the Summit. Register directly here. 

Become a Fundraiser: Set up a Deadline Champions fundraising page to support Breast Cancer Deadline 2020® and earn benefits as you progress—such as free Summit registration at the $350 level and free three-night shared hotel room at the $750 level.

BRING A NEW LEADER, GET A DISCOUNT: If you bring a new attendee (she or he has never attended the Leadership Summit*), both you and the new attendee will receive $50 off your $350 summit admission fee. So, both you and your newly recruited advocate leader would pay $300 each or each raise $300 to attend the summit.

*The new attendee could have attended an NBCC conference (2012 or before) or Project LEAD® (any year) in the past. New attendees are classified as those advocate leaders who have never attended a Leadership Summit; therefore they have not attended the spring event since 2012.

TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE: Once you have registered and paid or raised your registration fee and are interested in applying for a travel scholarship, please email Selena at sstanley@breastcancerdeadline2020.org for more information. You must have attended a previous Advocate Leadership Summit (2013-2017) to qualify for a travel scholarship.
