In 2016, the National Breast Cancer Coalition commemorates its 25th Anniversary.

We invite you to join us at the 2016 Advocate Leadership Summit in Washington, DC, from April 30-May 2, at the Renaissance Capitol 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 3, 2016 we will once again host a Lobby Day on Capitol Hill, to be sure our voices are heard.

At the 2016 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®. This extraordinary meeting will offer you ways to: 

  • Network with the most highly-committed and motivated group of leaders ever assembled in the world of breast cancer;
  • Interact with scientists, thought leaders, innovators and visionaries in small, intimate groups;
  • Get dynamic, world-class, advanced leadership training;
  • Hear about research on prevention and breast cancer metastasis as well as on cutting-edge topics in the areas of systems change and health care delivery; 
  • Understand the Administration and Congress in preparation for Lobby Day; 
  • Learn best practices from other leaders who are implementing their state and individual action plans.


Registration for the Advocate Leadership Summit

The registration fee for this year’s Summit is $500. This entitles you to three days of outstanding programing, Summit materials, all Summit meals and breaks, the Monday night Reception, 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.

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 $100 off your $500 summit admission fee. So, both you and your newly recruited advocate leader would pay $400 each or each raise $400 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 for more information. You must have attended a previous summit to qualify for a travel scholarship.

Hotel Reminder: NBCC’s sleeping room block at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel is filling up quickly.  Make your hotel reservations TODAY to ensure you’ll pay NBCC’s negotiated room rate of $189 (plus tax) per night; reservations made after midnight, Wednesday April 13th will be booked at a much higher rate!
