With a new administration in place, maintaining a powerful presence on Capitol Hill is vital for Adult Day Services.  We need you to join us May 8 – 10, as we champion our important mission.  Join us for a legislative briefing and dinner on the evening of May 8 and pre-arranged visits to the Hill on the morning of May 9.

The stakes for ADS have never been higher. With a repeal or replacement of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), one area of major concern to ADS providers and participants is the proposal to cap Medicaid spending. We must let Congress know the dire consequences for low income seniors and people with disabilities of any proposal that threatens federal Medicaid funding and access to Medicaid services for these most vulnerable populations.


Monday, May 8:

5:30 p.m.-8:00 p.m.

Dinner and Reception
Join us on Monday evening for networking and dinner with your Board of Directors as we gather to make and renew acquaintances, share ideas, and prepare for legislative meetings.

Tuesday, May 9:

7:30 am – 9:00 a.m.  Breakfast

8:00 – 9:00 a.m.   Depart for Legislative Appointments

8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.   Congressional Hill Visits
NADSA will provide assistance with scheduling meetings with Congressional staff/members of Congress for registrations received before the deadline.  The earlier you register, the better the scheduling options for meetings with your elected officials!

Plan now to join us in 2017 as a voice to strengthen adult day services.

Geboy, Baldwin, Penkowski (1)

Wisconsin delegates Lyn Geboy and Jim Penkowski met with Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-Wisconsin) in the Senate Reception Room, posing with the image of the great progressive Representative, Senator and Governor from Wisconsin, Robert “Fighting Bob” La Follette. They had the chance to speak directly to Senator Baldwin about adult day services and hopes to create a full-fledged place in the long- term care continuum for ADS.


As part of the annual Public Policy Conference, the networking dinner held the evening prior to legislative appointments provides opportunity for adult day services providers to meet colleagues from across the United States.

Plan now to join us in 2017 as a voice to strengthen adult day services.
