2019 Advocacy Days
LeadingAge New York invites you to participate in our two 2019 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 2019-20 State Budget.
Each Advocacy Day will begin at 8 a.m. with registration and breakfast. A legislative briefing that includes a budget update will be held from 9 to 10 a.m., with meetings with lawmakers following thereafter until 5 p.m. A break for lunch will take place between noon and 1 p.m.
Tues., Feb. 5, 2019 – Nursing Home, Home Care, Hospice, ADHC, and MLTC Advocacy Day
Our first Advocacy Day, which will be held in collaboration with the Adult Day Health Care Council and the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of New York State and 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. 5, 2019 in Meeting Room 5 on the Empire State Plaza. To register, please click here.
Once you've signed up, please begin scheduling meetings with your lawmakers! LeadingAge New York is happy to assist with scheduling, but your meetings will be more effective if you reach out to your legislators personally and set them up yourself. If you do set up your own meetings, please share your schedule with Sarah Daly at email@example.com and Jeff Diamond at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can coordinate with your colleagues.

Advocacy Day materials, including issue briefs, talking points, and other information, will be distributed prior to the event. Additionally, LeadingAge New York, the Adult Day Health Care Council, and the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of New York State will be hosting a prep call for all attendees on Fri., Feb. 1st from 1:30 to 3 p.m. to review these materials, go over logistics, and answer any questions. To join, please dial 1-888-585-9008 and enter the Conference Room code: 983-850-547.
