Legislative Day at the Capitol

TO:  All volunteers, volunteer coordinators and interested staff of healthcare organizations

You make a difference in the lives of people every day. Through your work as volunteers, leaders of volunteers and leaders of healthcare organizations, you have a positive impact in the lives of the patients, residents, families and the health care workers.

Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers would like you to take one more step to improve the care and quality of life for Minnesota by participating in Legislative Day at the Capitol on March 22, 2018.  This event is a wonderful opportunity to experience the legislative process.  By coming together, we have the power to influence legislation, which affects our health care and the long-term care system.

With the help of the Minnesota Hospital Association and LeadingAge of Minnesota, we will make your participation easy, informative and fun. We provide a light continental breakfast beginning at 8:30 a.m. during registration. At 9:00 a.m., an informational session will empower you with up-to-date legislative information and tips on being an effective citizen advocate. You will hear from our partners at Minnesota Hospital Association and from LeadingAge. During the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to speak with your legislative representatives at meetings we will arrange for you.  Be sure to take time to explore the newly remodeled Capitol.  Lunch will be on your own - most participants choose to enjoy a meal in the Capitol cafeteria, where they might run into leaders or a familiar reporter.

The more people who attend this event, the more our legislators will listen.  Even if you are not comfortable speaking to your legislator, just being there strengthens our message. Listening to the speakers will make you feel confident to share your story with the legislators, or with friends and neighbors in your community. We encourage you to invite as many health care volunteers, community leaders and concerned citizens as possible to join you at Legislative Day even if they are not present members of MAHV.

Dear Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers (MAHV) Members:

At the November Leadership Board meeting a sliding scale dues schedule was approved. This sliding scale will begin with the calendar year 2018. The new dues schedule will be reflected in the attached dues statement. Your Leadership Board feels that this new dues schedule reflects the various levels of our member organizations. It also serves as an incentive for members' ongoing support for the work your statewide organization does for all our volunteers throughout our state.

This new dues schedule will be based on the total number of all volunteers and auxilians at your facility. The new scale is as follows:

>300         $200.00
100-300     $150.00
25-100       $100.00
<25           $25.00

We hope this new dues structure will further be an incentive for non-member organizations to become a part of the Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers. The Leadership Board and District Chairs have developed a strategy to attract these organizations and we hope you will support them in their effort to recruit new members.

Thank you so much for your continued support. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your District Chairs.
