Anyone interested in public policy as it relates to senior citizens is encouraged to attend the Queens Interagency Council on Aging’s 31st Annual Legislative Forum, set for Feb. 7.
This year’s legislative priorities for QICA, which is marking its 43rd anniversary, include affordable housing, accessible transportation, protecting the federal safety net and social adult day care.
Borough President Melinda Katz is expected to participate in the meeting, and other elected officials from the city, state and federal levels have been invited.
The event is free and open to the public, though seating is limited and preregistration is encouraged. Seniors, service professionals and those concerned about aging advocacy are especially encouraged to attend. Interested parties should call (718) 268-5954 to preregister.
The forum will be held in room 213 of Queens Borough Hall, located at 120-55 Queens Boulevard in Kew Gardens. Registration, during which a continental breakfast will be served, will begin at 9:30 a.m. The meeting will start at 10 and run until 11:30.
