The annual Argentum Public Policy Institute & Fly-In was held March 5-6 on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. The event provided attendees with the opportunity to learn about Argentum’s public policy priorities from industry experts and distinguished guests while becoming a more effective advocate.

The sessions at the Public Policy Institute on March 5 highlighted the following legislative priorities:

Argentum advocates also participated in nearly 50 meetings with legislators and their staff on Capitol Hill during the Argentum Fly-In, highlighting three of Argentum’s advocacy priorities:

  1. Supporting the state regulatory model: maintaining regulatory oversight of the industry in the states
  2. Retirement security crisis: 1 in 3 Americans have less than $5,000 saved for retirement let alone long-term care services and supports
  3. Workforce development: finding and retaining a qualified workforce to care for 1.4 million seniors by 2025

Though some were more familiar with the industry than others, this served as an opportunity to serve as a resource to them. We look forward to strengthening relationships with all offices regardless of their familiarity, committee, or seniority. Thanks to all who joined us—and we hope to see you in 2020!
