NEWS & EVENTS : Advocacy Day is Coming Up: Mark Your Calendars for Monday, February 13th!

Fight for higher wages for the Personal Assistants of Consumer Direction!

Concepts will be participating in Advocacy Day on Monday, February 13th in Albany, NY. We need to get a quick sense of who will be participating in our Albany meetings so we can arrange any necessary transportation. We welcome all Concepts Consumers, PAs, and Surrogates. If you want to participate:

1. Send us a note and let us know.

2. Schedule appointments with your NYS Senator and/or Assembly Member for February 13th. To do this, first find who your Senator is, and also your Assembymember. Then call the phone number listed for their Albany office and say, “I’m a constituent and I’m coming to Albany on February 13th to advocate for Consumer Directed Services. I’d like to meet with a staff member who is knowledgeable on health care issues.” Try to make your appointments between noon – 3pm. If you have trouble, contact me at or Meghan at


Can't make it to Albany?

We also encourage those who can't go to Albany to make appointments with your NYS Senator and/or Assemblymember's local office. 

More details will be coming soon.
