On Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the Virginia Assisted Living Association (VALA) will partner with other organizations for the 2023 Virginia Business Day at the Virginia General Assembly. Please join assisted living providers, industry advocates, and residents of local assisted living communities for the Virginia Assisted Living Awareness Day. Please help us to educate Virginia's legislators on the benefits and importance of assisted living as a long-term care option in Virginia! Also, please help us to remind Virginia's legislators that SENIORS VOTE TOO! and they want to keep assisted living as a housing option in Virginia.

VALA will help assisted living advocates to schedule visits with legislators and their staff members at the Virginia General Assembly in Richmond, VA. The appointments will be scheduled based on the availability of participants and legislative contacts. 

All participants are encouraged to participate in an educational conference call on Monday, January 23, 2023 at 2 PM. This conference call will provide information on what to expect at the Virginia General Assembly, and it will provide important information on the legislative bills that pertain to the assisted living industry. Conference call-in information will be provided in a separate e-mail following your registration.
Please see below for the tentative schedule of events for the day.
