Under the leadership of the Legislative/Environmental Committee, our Chapter seeks to educate members about critical issues affecting them and to call for action as appropriate when pending legislation may have an impact on their lives.
The Committee arranges for informed community leaders to speak at our monthly chapter meetings once or twice a year.
The Chapter’s Board of Directors may take positions on key legislative and policy issues at the state and local levels that will affect seniors. These positions are communicated to policymakers through letters from the Chapter and from individual members, through petitions and personal contact.
Periodically, the committee sponsors field trips to key facilities in the area to educate members about the services provided by these groups. For example, recently the Legislative/Environmental group talked with Todd Lawson, Administrator of the Sussex County Council, on three key issues facing this county: transportation, HOA’s and pollution of our inland bays.
