2018 Advocacy Days
LeadingAge New York, the Adult Day Health Care Council, and the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of New York State invite you to participate in our two 2018 Advocacy Days, to be held in Albany in February and March. We hope you will join us to ensure that long term care is properly represented in the 2018-19 State Budget.
- Nursing Home, Home Care, Hospice, ADHC, and MLTC Advocacy Day: Our first Advocacy Day, which will focus on issues pertinent to nursing homes, home care, hospice, adult day health care (ADHC), and Managed Long Term Care (MLTC), will take place on Tues., Feb. 6, 2018 in Meeting Room 4 on the Empire State Plaza. To register, please click here.
- Housing, ACF/AL, Aging Services Program, and NORC Advocacy Day: Our second Advocacy Day will be held on Tues., March 6, 2018 in Meeting Room 1 on the Plaza and will focus on issues related to housing, adult care facilities (ACFs), assisted living (AL), aging services programs, and Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs). Registration is available here.
Once you've registered, we encourage you to begin scheduling meetings with your lawmakers! LeadingAge New York has found that constituents reaching out to legislators directly is often an effective way of getting substantive one-on-one meetings. If you do set up your own meetings, please share your schedule with Jeff Diamond at email@example.com so that we can coordinate with your colleagues. LeadingAge New York is also happy to assist with scheduling in any way we can.
Materials for both Advocacy Days, including issue briefs, talking points, and other information, will be distributed beforehand. You may use these resources to educate your representatives about the challenges you face and build support for our policy agenda.
We look forward to seeing you in Albany!
