Aging Policy and Advocacy Summit
Save the Dates!
Our charge as advocates for older adults has perhaps never been so important. That’s why we’ve re-envisioned our in-person annual spring policy event to meet this critical moment. Instead of you coming to DC, we’ve decided to bring DC to you with our new virtual Aging Policy and Advocacy Summit. Held April 27-29, the Summit will have something for everyone, from new advocates to tested veterans.
Here’s a tentative schedule:
Day 1: Policy and Advocacy Crash Course | Tuesday, April 27
If you’ve always wanted an Aging Policy 101 session or more details on advocacy best practices, our new Summit will deliver. Need an easy way to educate your advisory board members on federal policy and advocacy? We’ve got it. Day 1, our “crash course” day, is intentionally designed for newer AAA directors, policy-shy aging professionals, senior staff and your advisory board members!
Day 2: Aging Policy Deep Dive | Wednesday, April 28
If you love our annual Aging Policy Briefing and Hill Day and we usually see you in DC, you’ll enjoy the cross-cutting and in-depth federal policy sessions that help connect the dots to your state and local efforts. Our Aging Policy Deep Dive will feature discussions of key issues from respected policy experts and officials. We’ll also provide guidance on how to arrange virtual visits with your Members of Congress the week of the Summit, so you can begin applying the advocacy lessons and new policy knowledge right away.
Day 3: Medicare Opportunities for AAAs | Thursday, April 29
Can’t get enough information on integrated care opportunities and policies and how they affect your agency? On Day 3, n4a’s Aging and Disability Business Institute will host an intensive on Medicare payment opportunities for your AAA.
When registration opens in early 2021, you will be able to select n4a member rates for one-day registration at $150 or registration for all three days at $250, an incredible value you won’t find elsewhere. And, by saving travel costs to DC, you can spend those cost savings to spread the knowledge to your key staff and elected and volunteer leaders!
More details to come at www.n4a.org/agingpolicysummit, but please save the dates (April 27-29, 2021) and take the time now to think about how you could use this informative and dynamic educational opportunity to benefit your agency and its work!
