Assisted Living Advocacy Day - March 23rd

The first day of the LeadingAge California RISE Policy Summit is dedicated to Assisted Living providers but will be open to all aging services stakeholders. This is the best day for Life Plan Communities (CCRCs, MLRCs, & RCFEs) to advocate and participate in the panel discussions. The Assisted Living Advocacy Day will include a variety of panels made up of key department officials, Legislators, and other experts who will provide updates on industry trends and projections and the latest Assisted Living bills introduced in the State Legislature. 

Attendees of the event will be invited to advocate on key issue impacting Assisted Living providers and residents across the state. In addition to grassroots advocacy opportunities on the day of the event, LeadingAge California will arrange meetings with your respective Assemblymembers and Senators in the two weeks following the RISE Policy Summit.
