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®. 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 $350: This entitles you to three days of outstanding programming, Summit materials, breakfast, lunches and refreshment breaks, the Monday night Reception, and 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.

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 (2013-2016) to qualify for a travel scholarship.
