A POLICY FOCUS. A CALL TO ACTION.
Make Your Voice Heard, Now More Than Ever.
Congressional Meetings at the LeadingAge Leadership Summit
LeadingAge members make a difference on Capitol Hill. Your voice is the trusted voice. Your experience and leadership matter—and now more than ever, elected officials need to hear from you.
You don’t need to be a lobbyist or policy wonk to be an advocacy champion. Your on-the-ground expertise is your most valuable asset. Together, we can amplify our voice to raise awareness about the most critical issues impacting aging services providers, their employees, and the older adults and families they serve.
Join us at Leadership Summit to be part of a movement to advance key workforce recruitment and retention initiatives, increase funding for affordable housing programs, reduce the regulatory burden on nursing home providers, and bolster efforts to improve access to housing, care, and services for older adults.
Congressional Meeting Activities
- Congressional Briefing: Prepare for your visits to Capitol Hill with your state delegation during our “Know Before You Go” educational session before you come to Washington D.C. We’ll provide you with key messages to deliver to lawmakers and their staff.
- Hill Visits: We take care of the logistics for you—we’ll schedule meetings with elected officials and provide you with a custom schedule for your visits. This year we will be scheduling meetings throughout Leadership Summit to accommodate new COVID-19 and security protocols that have been put in place in congressional offices. We will work to coordinate your meetings and help you plan your time in Washington D.C. to be an effective advocate while also attending our amazing educational sessions.
In addition, our policy sessions will give you an insider perspective on policy changes, legislative goals and regulatory issues on the horizon, including LeadingAge’s policy priorities and the strategies needed to influence action on Capitol Hill this election year.
