Public Policy Committee

The Public Policy Committee is responsible for guiding LeadingAge PA staff in the advocacy and public policy initiatives for the Association. The committee ensures that policy-related decisions are made with member input. Additionally, the Public Policy Committee assists LeadingAge PA staff with reviewing and providing input on pending legislation and helps set the priority of LeadingAge PA's advocacy efforts on legislation. Occasionally, the committee may also be asked to offer feedback on proposed regulations - broad in both scope and overall impact to our members.
