Advocacy Fly-In

About the Advocacy Fly-In


The Argentum Advocacy Fly-In is the premier public policy event for senior living advocates. Open to Argentum members only, this two day event brings together leaders from across the country to Washington, DC to advocate for the principles of choice, independence, and quality of life for seniors.

As the senior living business continues to grow and thrive, we will inherently undergo increasing scrutiny by the media, by advocates and by well-meaning officials at both the federal and state level.  Thus, it is vital that lawmakers, policymakers, regulators and other federal and state officials understand what the senior living business is all about, what we do and what we don’t do, why senior living is such an extraordinarily popular option among seniors and their families—and why it is important to continue to strengthen the regulations governing those who serve seniors in each of the 50 states.  You can help carry this message directly to your elected U.S. Senators and U.S. Representatives by attending and participating in our Argentum Advocacy Fly-In.

Your presence in these meetings is paramount to our advocacy efforts. You are the voice of senior living. You are the most effective advocates in the best interests of resident-centered care.

Argentum fully briefs and prepares attendees for meetings. At Argentum's Issues Education and Grassroots Advocacy training, we arm professionals with facts, figures and fundamentals for engaging federal representatives. Argentum provides an informative session that features political insiders and policy experts who reinforce the importance of advocacy and prepare professionals to have successful and substantive meetings. Argentum also provides an assisted living overview that includes:

  • Current assisted living resident demographics
  • Appropriate senior living terminology
  • Average assisted living costs
  • Senior living business and labor issues
