 February 4 - 5, 2019  Texas State Capitol • Austin

Bring your board members! Bring your team!

We must establish a strong voice for not-for-profit aging services in the 86th Legislature. Join your fellow members at the 2019 Advocacy Workshop & Capitol Day to advocate for those you serve and their caregivers. Legislators need to hear from you so they understand, promote, and protect the programs and services your communities provide for senior Texans. Your credibility as an industry expert and as a provider makes you an ideal advocate for your community and the seniors you serve! LeadingAge Texas members will storm the Capitol to spread our message to our lawmakers.
