On September 13, Argentum members went to Capitol Hill where they met with Senators and staff from 40 different offices representing 20 states to discuss the importance of preventing elder abuse, supporting innovations in the senior living industry, and reviewing the various levels of care they provide for their residents.
The Silver PAC fundraising campaign kicked off at the annual Argentum Conference and Expo in Nashville this May.
