Lobby Day
Share |



Every year members of the United New York Ambulance Network go to our state capital to educate members of the state Legislature on issues that are important to the ambulance industry. Each year we narrow down our list of issues to a manageable number and craft memorandums of support or opposition to specific bills that affect EMS and our member services.

Our annual EMS Lobby Day began as a one-day trip centering on Lobbying and has grown to a two-day event that includes a Recognition Banquet and Reception. The Recognition Banquet is an opportunity for our member services to honor their outstanding employees for their commitment and dedication to the EMS Industry as well as to our patients and fellow employees. Each year more than 100 UNYAN members and company employees attend EMS Lobby Day.

The Reception and a flurry of meetings are all part of the Lobby Day experience for UNYAN members. We come from all over the state to meet with Legislators and display our ambulances in front of the State Capitol Building.

The members of the United New York Ambulance Network have honored certain State Legislators who have, over the years, played an active leadership role acknowledging the critical role our commercial ambulance members play in ensuring the health and safety of New York State residents.

Lobby Day Information

, Lobby Day is scheduled for  APRIL 29 AND APRIL 30, 2019. April 29th is our UNYAN meeting, Associate Member showcase and banquet and April 30th is Lobby Day! I know I say this every year, but this year is probably one of the the most important Lobby Days we’ll ever have.

With volunteer ambulance companies closing due to low reimbursement, the role of the commercial providers is more important than it ever was.

Please note: we are not honoring Outstanding Employees at our banquet, but will be handing out the Ron Kintz Award of EMS Excellence – see attached.  We will honor Outstanding Employees later this year. The UNYAN meeting will be in the afternoon, as soon as we nail down the time I will let everyone know – it will more than likely be similar to last year and run from 2- 5 p.m. or thereabouts.

Many have new Legislators, please make sure you look up the names of your Legislators and put them on the appointment sheet.  I have not heard from several companies, so please let me know if you will make it to Lobby Day or not.
