Aging Policy Briefing


Registration Now Open for the
26th Annual n4a Aging Policy Briefing!

Change is one of the only constants in Washington, and 2020 will be no exception! As the election season approaches, candidates and Congress will continue to debate critical aging, health care and budget policy, making it important that aging and health policy advocates stay up to date on how these dynamics will affect local programs. The Aging Policy Briefing is designed to do just that!
Join us March 17-18 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.

  • Get the latest details on how health and aging policy debates during a pivotal election year affect the older adults and caregivers in your communities.
  • Learn from insiders and experts on how upcoming regulatory and legislative changes during the final year of the Administration’s first term may affect your work.
  • Explore best practices and strategies needed to be effective advocates for your communities with your lawmakers on Capitol Hill—and back home—in today’s quickly changing political and policy environment.
And, join n4a’s Aging and Disability Business Institute for a pre-conference intensive, Is a Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) in Your Future? New Partnership and Development Opportunities for Area Agencies on Aging. Attendees at this pre-conference will learn from peer AAAs and other experts about opportunities to developing or partner with PACE sites to serve older adults with complex care needs and expand your scope of services and funding sources. A separate registration fee is required, and more information about the pre-conference will be available soon.

Tuesday, March 17: In the morning, join n4a’s Aging and Disability Business Institute for a pre-conference intensive, Is PACE in Your Future? New Partnership and Development Opportunities for AAAs. After lunch, the Aging Policy Briefing will kick off with a host of aging and health care policy programming as well as updates from Capitol Hill and the Administration.
Wednesday, March 18: Attendees will convene bright and early for a kick-off breakfast and advocacy training before deploying to Capitol Hill around 11 a.m. for a nearly full day of meetings with Representatives and Senators. Advocates are responsible for setting up visits with their Members of Congress, but the n4a policy team is happy to help upon request.
