Teleconferences help you keep up with legislature

 


Did you know that the Alaska Commission on Aging (ACoA) monitored a total of 45 bills and resolutions and actively supported 25 pieces of legislation that affected seniors during the FY2014 legislative session? We also provided committee testimony and letters of support to bill sponsors, legislative committees and Congressional members.

Senior advocacy is a “team effort.” We invite you and other Alaskans in your community to be active this legislative session by participating in the 2015 ACoA Senior Legislative Teleconferences. The purpose of these teleconferences is to foster dialogue about senior issues, seek input from seniors about legislation of most importance to them, monitor important issues affecting Alaskan communities, and to advocate for older Alaskans.

2015 Teleconference Meeting Schedule: We meet from 9:30 to 11 a.m. every other Thursday and weekly during the last month of session. 

Below are the meeting dates:

January 29

February 12, 26

March 12, 26

April 9, 16, 23
