MHCA Grassroots Advocacy
Share |

Every year, your MHCA government affairs team works diligently in the State Capitol and even at the national level, speaking to policy makers working to secure much needed funding, passing legislation to help your day-to-day operations and working to keep legislation that would have a negative impact on the work you do from passing the General Assembly.  Having our legislators well-versed in the daily operations of skilled nursing facilities is vital to our progress and success. Your government affairs team is just part of the equation, you are the other part!  We need you – our members – to help educate legislators.  Your story is what will make the difference.  Developing a relationship with your legislator and helping them understand the day to day struggles you face can make a difference in whether or not our work with the General Assembly is successful.   Invite your legislators to your facility for a tour or for an event such as Nursing Home Week, a birthday celebration for a resident turning 100 years old or just observe a normal day in your facility.  Your participation can also be something as simple as a tweet to your legislator or as involved as MHCA Lobby Day in March. Whatever your level of participation, we need you to be part of our team. 


MHCA stands ready to assist you.  And now we ask you to Stand with MHCA Another legislative session is here and we have a big fight ahead of us. You know the struggles of underfunding as you live them every day. We need you and your community prepared to add your voice to the cause.  Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter to stay up to date on association and legislative updates.
