MSV's Advocacy Summit

Do you have an idea that can advance health care in Virginia? Are you facing an issue that affects the practice of medicine? Join us at the MSV Advocacy Summit!

The MSV Advocacy Summit is an opportunity for all physicians to propose ideas for MSV’s advocacy efforts, including MSV’s legislative agenda.

Due to the public health concern and Governor Northam’s announcement of measures to combat the spread of COVID-19, the Advocacy Summit has been postponed. For updates regarding rescheduling or for more information, please contact Government Affairs Manager Kelsey Wilkinson at

Who can attend the Advocacy Summit?

Physicians, physician-assistants, medical students, local and specialty societies are invited to submit proposals and participate in the Advocacy Summit. 

How do I submit a proposal?

The author of the proposal, or their designee, must be present at the Summit to present and answer questions about the proposal. Only MSV members can submit proposals for consideration.

What happens to the proposal once submitted?

Proposals will be reviewed and considered by MSV’s Specialty Advisory Council, Advocacy Committee and Board of Directors for further review. After the Summit, proposals will be posted on the MSV website for virtual commenting and feedback. 

The MSV staff is here to help! For questions, please contact us at or (804) 377-1036.
