Florida’s Advocate for Long Term Care
Providers and the Elders They Serve

Lobby Wednesdays

Stay informed, get involved and make a difference

FHCA’s Lobby Wednesdays give members an important opportunity to share with legislators and key decision makers how their legislation affects your facilities and how you provide quality care to your residents.

Each week before and during legislative session, FHCA members travel to Tallahassee to advocate on behalf of the profession. Lobby Wednesdays start with an informative briefing by FHCA's legislative team, followed by your meetings with legislators and staff and other activities at the Capitol. The day wraps up with a quick debriefing with FHCA to recap your meetings and discuss any follow up activities that need to be coordinated. A typical Lobby Wednesday ends between 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. EST. Once you've completed your day, let us know how your visit goes using our FHCA member Capitol Meeting Report.
