Become an Advocate for Long Term Care

Sign Up for FHCA's Lobby Wednesdays 2013

Legislators are in Tallahassee this week for their first round of committee meetings in anticipation of the 2013 legislative session, which begins March 5, 2013. Once again, FHCA is looking for long term care advocates to help bring our messages to the Capitol about the importance of preserving Medicaid funding to ensure continued delivery of high-quality care for Florida's most frail elders. FHCA members can do their part by signing up to participate in the Association's Lobby Wednesdays. This important grassroots initiative is your opportunity to connect with lawmakers in the State Capitol during session and stand up for your profession, your staff and your residents.

A limited number of dates are available for Lobby Wednesdays 2013, which begin March 7 (Thursday) and will run through April 17. Consider signing up yourself, your company or your FHCA district; bring your front line caregivers, family members and residents; and help us exceed last year's Lobby Wednesday participation of more than 500 long term care advocates. FHCA has once again selected the Aloft Hotel in downtown Tallahassee for convenient access to the Association headquarters and the Capitol, and as a member benefit, the Association will reimburse members' room night for the prior evening. Whether you're a seasoned professional or new to the Lobby Wednesday experience, please take time to watch our video and learn more about how you can get involved today.
