On Wednesday, February 3, 2016, at the Georgia State Capitol, there will be a day set aside to help our state legislators focus on issues that are of great importance to Georgians living with Alzheimer’s or a related dementia. Registration is now open for the 2016 Awareness Day. There is no registration fee to attend Awareness day, but you must register to attend. The deadline for registration is Sunday, January 30th. On February 3rd lunch will take place at Central Presbyterian Church, across the street from the Capitol. There will be more than 300 advocates from all across Georgia from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. focusing on Adult Guardianship, Power of Attorney, Mandatory Reporters, and Home and Community-Based Services. Other issues will be supported as well. Training opportunities to learn about the issues and what will happen on Awareness Day are available; plan to attend one of the pre-Awareness Day Training Sessions offered in each region. At the training session there will be a review of the issues in detail, questions will be answered, and you can plan for transportation to and from the Capitol (for all except the Atlanta Region). To register for one of the pre-Awareness Day Trainings and Awareness Day, visit the Georgia Chapter Advocacy Page, http://act.alz.org/site/PageNavigator/georgiaadvocacy.html1 under “Upcoming Events.” Lunch and a VOICE t-shirt will be provided for those who do not already have one. If you have questions about Alzheimer’s Association Federal or State Advocacy Efforts contact Kathy Simpson, (404) 728-6068, or firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
