LeadingAge National Approves Public Policy Priorities for 2018

February 2, 2018

The LeadingAge national board of directors earlier this week approved their Legislative and Regulatory Advocacy Priorities for 2018. (pdf) The priorities were adopted using a new process led by the Public Policy Committee and developed in consultation with state executives from each LeadingAge affiliate. The 2018 priorities are classified as either:

  • LEAD (maximum organizational effort and nationwide commitment)
    • Could include multiple partners
    • To be limited to 2 to 3 issues at any one time
  • ENGAGE (moderate organizational effort and targeted activity)
    • Examples include coalition work, participating in sign-on letters, submittal of statements for the record, comments on regulations.
  • MONITOR (active tracking)

The priorities will be used to develop a focused set of asks on issues most important to the membership that will be used on Capitol Hill visits with congressional delegates during PEAK in March.
