A primary role of the Coalition of Advocates for Georgia's Elderly is to be a vehicle for bringing broad-based input on aging issues from across the state to the attention of the General Assembly. Participants are encouraged to voice their concerns, submit issues for the prioritization process and engage in joint advocacy efforts with other stakeholders.

Members will then be able to vote at the annual meeting on July 12 or via survey link distributed on July 13. 

Only CO-AGE Voting members will be able to vote for the 2019 issues. Please renew or join today! Renewals and new memberships must be made by June 30, 2018.
