    2019 will prove to be an important year. With nearly 40 new members in the State Legislature and new leadership in the State Senate, including a new Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee chair, familiarizing legislators with our agencies and our issues will be a primary goal. Therefore, we encourage you to attend the day and a half event in February to educate, communicate and advocate.

    The two chairs of the Senate and Assembly Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committees will be part of the event schedule to facilitate panel discussions on workforce and healthcare/managed care. A briefing on the proposed 2019-2020 Executive Budget proposal will also be delivered to event attendees.

    Our consultants on the #bFair2DirectCare Campaign and Albany Insiders, Steve Greenberg and Bob Bellafiore will join us to provide an inside look into the 2019 State Legislative session and we’ll also hear about key pieces of legislation and the State Budget outlook. Members will also have the opportunity to meet with their legislators in the State Capitol and Legislative Office Building to discuss our priorities and budget requests.

    Registration for the February 11th and 12th Legislative Forum is open. 

    Help us ensure our voices are heard. Join us in Albany and be part of our advocacy day.


    Important Note: If you plan to meet with State Legislators while joining us in Albany, we encourage you to make your appointments as soon as possible.
