Legislative Day


is back!!

The remodeling project of the Capital is completed making it possible for us to visit our representatives and senators on their turf.


Due to the craziness at the capital this year it has been difficult to schedule a day for both the hospital and aging services sides.  LeadingAge has graciously invited us to join them at their scheduled day.

If you are affiliated with a care center, assisted living, adult day care, home care, independent senior housing, home care, or hospice you will be interested in joining this group and visiting with your legislators about issues concerning aging services.  Right now, the elderly waver is a hot topic and could affect many people in our communities.

Below you will find the details and registration information.  Please register as soon as possible as the registration must be sent to LeadingAge no later than Monday March 20th to allow adequate time to set up legislative visits.

Register Today! Day at the Capitol is March 30th

The 2017 Day at the Capitol will be held on March 30, 2017. The event, which gives LeadingAge Minnesota members and caregivers from across Minnesota the opportunity to support legislative advocacy efforts, will start at the Best Western Plus Capitol Ridge with an overview of the 2017 legislative session. 

The annual Day at the Capitol ensures lawmakers hear firsthand from members about what needs to be done to meet the needs of the growing older adult population.

Special guests will include the hosts of the Wrong About Everything podcast, who will provide a general overview of the legislative session, and our public affairs team will update members on this year’s legislative priorities.

Attendees will then head to the nearby State Capitol complex to meet with their elected officials, and have the opportunity to see the renovated State Capitol that re-opened at the beginning of this year after a three-year, $309 million restoration.

To register, contact Kathy Johnson at kathyee49@gmail.com or 320-226-6560.

President Diane Damerow

2015-2017 President



 Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers

                                        by Diane Damerow


I am very excited to serve as your next President of our newly named organization,

Minnesota Association of Healthcare Volunteers.  It is indeed an exciting time for all of

us!  It will take some time to get everthing done so that we can use the new name,

probably till the first of the yearWe will be making the necessary legal changes,

implementing our new logo and creating  some products for all of you to use.  So just

use what you have until January 1.

With the change we also have revised our by-laws.  We will be talking about them at our 

fall district meetings as well as sending them via email to all of our members.  They have 

been simplified so that you can actually understand them!

 A bit about me- I am a professional volunteer in my retirement.  My husband somtimes says

I should get a real job so I could make some money!  But I view this time as my time to 

give back to my community.  I also volunteer in my church and several other organizations

including my own auxiliary.  My career of 34 years was dedicated to designing, developing

and implementing educational programming for youth (4-H) and adults in family development

and gerontology.  I am married to Ken and we have two sons, one married with two wonderful

grandchildren.  In my spare time I like to travel, spend time with family and friends and flower garden. 

Don't forget to "like" us on Facebook too.
