Register for Advocacy Day 2019

Register for Advocacy Day 2019

Welcome to the 2019 Legislative Session! Advocacy Day is Tues., Feb. 5! Every year, ADHCC members travel to Albany to meet with their elected officials and advocate for ADHC. This is your chance to talk about the value and importance of your ADHC program located in the legislator’s district. There are several new members of the Senate and Assembly and we want to meet with as many of them as possible. We fully anticipate the proposed Executive Budget will include a proposal to eliminate Method 1 transportation. This has been our biggest issue for the past three budget cycles. We will need your help to successfully defeat this again!

Advocate for Method 1 transportation by registering here for Advocacy Day Feb. 5.

After you register, you must call the legislator in your district and schedule an appointment. Click here to find your legislator. If you would like assistance identifying your legislators and scheduling visits, please contact Drue Barton dbarton@leadingageny.org. We are also available and very happy to accompany you on visits. Please avoid scheduling visits between 12-1 p.m. when we will host a luncheon and invite legislators to speak.

Advocacy Day materials, including issue briefs, talking points and directions to Albany will be developed after our budget analysis and will be available in advance of advocacy day.

See you on February 5th!
