Aging Policy Briefing

Registration Now Open for the
25th Annual n4a Aging Policy Briefing!

The 2018 elections will result in major priority and policy shifts in Washington when the 116th Congress convenes in January. Join n4a March 5-6 for the 25th anniversary of its Aging Policy Briefing and participate in comprehensive discussions about what these changes mean for aging and health care policy advocates. It is critically important that the Aging Network be ready to work with the new Congress as Democrats assume control of the House of Representatives and Republicans expand their majority in the Senate—and n4a’s Aging Policy Briefing is an opportunity to hone your advocacy skills, learn about recent developments in aging and health policy and engage your Members and their staff early in the new Congress.

Join us March 5-6 on Capitol Hill to learn the latest policy information, gain new insights from national experts and discuss advocacy strategy on a range of programs critical to your agency and those you serve. Policy issues discussed will include federal health care and aging programs, including Medicaid, Medicare and the Older Americans Act, as well as related aging priorities like transportation, caregiving, elder justice and more. We will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Aging Network’s only annual policy event at a reception on Capitol Hill!

Join n4a on Tuesday, March 5 and Wednesday, March 6, 2019 as we bring together stakeholders from across the country, key Administration officials, Members of Congress and their staff, and other experts to:
  • Get the latest on what the seismic shift in the political and policy landscape in Washington means for the older adults and caregivers you serve in your communities;
  • Learn about n4a’s aging and health care policy priorities for 2019—including for the upcoming OAA reauthorization;
  • Hear details about ongoing Trump Administration plans for vital federal programs serving older adults;
  • Meet with your Representatives and Senators—especially new Members and staff—in DC; and 
  • Explore advocacy best practices and strategies in a changing policy environment.

Tuesday, March 5: n4a will host a full day of aging and health care policy programming, with attendees diving into analysis of health care and aging policy as well as updates from Capitol Hill and the Trump Administration. Participants will hear from experts about priorities for the new Congress, including Older Americans Act reauthorization and federal funding. That evening, n4a will host a Capitol Hill reception to mark the 25th anniversary of the n4a Aging Policy Briefing & Capitol Hill Day where attendees will have a chance to network with other advocates as well as congressional staff.
Wednesday, March 6: Attendees will convene bright and early for a kick-off breakfast and final rally before deploying to Capitol Hill for a full day of meetings with Representatives and Senators. Please note that advocates are responsible for setting up visits with their Members of Congress, but the n4a policy team is happy to help upon request.
