Legislative Day


What is the Virginia Assisted Living Legislative Day?  

A chance for you to join in the discussion and to have your voice heard. Please help us to educate Virginia's legislators on the benefits and importance of having affordable and quality assisted living communities in Virginia! Also, please help us to let Virginia's legislators know that “SENIORS VOTE TOO!” and they want to keep assisted living as a housing option in Virginia. 

Below are a few of the important reasons why you should attend.  

  • Industry Advocacy - Help spread the voice of Virginia’s assisted living industry by having the opportunity to express the needs and preferences of residents and staff. VALA will provide key talking points supporting the assisted living industry based on current legislative and regulatory requirements and proposals.
  • Industry Recognition - Join assisted living industry advocates as they are recognized on the floor of Virginia House of Delegates and the Virginia Senate
  • Networking Opportunities with legislators, legislative aides, and other assisted living advocates

Refer to the VALA website for more information about regulations and legislation, including how to search for your legislators.
