Advocating for It's Members
NCAOA members of the association board speak at public hearings held by the Study Commission on Aging, and distribute copies of the associations Legislative Priorities to members of the General Assembly.
As issues arise for voting consideration, association members and constituents receive legislative alert emails asking for support. In addition, members receive Legislative Bulletins from the association.
