NVAN's Legislative Committee begins work each summer to decide the issues of importance to seniors in the region that will be transmitted to the Virginia General Assembly in a Legislative Platform. The NVAN Legislative Platform and Background the 2018 session of the General Assembly is now available here.
NVAN works closely with the Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging (V4A) to educate legislators on:
the needs among older Virginians
enlightened policies and regulations that will make aging with dignity available to all older Virginians
Each fall, NVAN introduces its legislative platform to local elected officials, state delegates and senators at its annual Legislative Breakfast.
