Plastic surgery local, state and regional societies are valued partners and ASPS is committed to supporting these societies through the ASPS State Partnership Program. At the ASPS Virtual Advocacy Summit, the State Partnership Program will host an exclusive forum for physician leaders, lobbyists, and staff of local, state and regional plastic surgery societies.

During the Physician Leaders Forum, physician leaders and society staff will come together to discuss the most effective methods for advocating and representing plastic surgery at the local level. Attendees will discuss advocacy obstacles faced including defending the specialty, proactively advocating for plastic surgery patients and working in coalitions to advance legislation. Other business aspects of society management will also be discussed.

The Physician Leaders Forum at the Advocacy Summit is the only opportunity all year for physician leaders and staff from local, state, and regional plastic surgery societies to meet and network.
