Illinois Action Summit

There has never been a greater need for increased awareness than now!

Join us for the 2014 Illinois Action Summit as we encourage our Illinois legislators to understand the importance of prioritizing Alzheimer’s disease among our States policies. YOUR presence and YOUR voice provide the greatest opportunity to ensure that the needs of Alzheimer’s patients, family members and caregivers are addressed. Please consider taking the time to be a part of this critical movement!

At the beginning of the Summit, you will be briefed on the Association’s policy priorities for 2014 and what messages we will ask advocates to carry to legislators throughout the afternoon. Strategies and tools for a successful visit will also be shared.

Following lunch, we will host a Meet n’ Greet with Lt. Governor Sheila Simon in her Springfield office. This event provides an opportunity for you to engage your legislator in a fun and informal setting! We will also be visiting many other members of both the Illinois Senate and House of Representatives and you will have the chance to share your personal stories and ask for support for Alzheimer’s initiatives.

Transportation to the Capitol will be arranged from a variety of locations. A small donation is requested to help cover lunch, snacks, transportation and all advocacy materials.

Please sign up today!.......
