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.
Lobby Day Activities
Lobby Day Preparation: Prepare for your visits to Capitol Hill by attending LeadingAge’s “Know Before You Go” educational webinar before you come to Washington D.C. We’ll provide you with key messages to deliver to lawmakers and their staff and tips for Lobby Day. The Leadership Summit’s policy sessions will also 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. Finally, you’ll attend our Lobby Day breakfast to give you the latest news and encouragement for going to the Hill and have the Lobby Day app so all your meetings and talking points are at-hand.
Lobby Day Congressional 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. You’ll be with others on your visits. This year we will be scheduling meetings on Wednesday during Leadership Summit. 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.
