LeadingAge Wisconsin's 2023 Advocacy Day at the Capitol is returning this year to an in-person event in Madison with a morning program and meetings scheduled for you with your state legislators! Registration for this year's Advocacy Day At The Capitol is sponsored by Value First. Registration is FREE and includes the morning program and lunch.  

This event is specifically designed to prepare you and your team members to visit with your State Legislators. (This is not a traditional educational program and CEUs will not be offered). The most important aspect of our Advocacy Day is meeting with your legislators or their staff during the time we have set aside in the afternoon.

*Please include the address of YOUR ORGANIZATION as part of the registration so we can schedule you with the appropriate State Senator and Representative. Your appointments will be scheduled between 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.

At the event, LeadingAge Wisconsin staff will brief you on the issues related to the state budget and our other legislative priorities, and will provide you with all the materials you will need to have a successful meeting with your legislators.
