This organization continues to offer great potential in representing senior interests in Washington.
That potential becomes even greater and more important as the senior population rapidly grows.
The timing of this event should also be favorable. Significant issues are currently being discussed by
Presidential candidates. There are changes afoot that could greatly affect senior citizens. That’s why it
is more important than ever for the NSHC to remain active, to grow in membership, and to do our best to
communicate senior interests to Congress and the Administration. To that end, please commit yourself to the
extent you are able to remain active in the NSHC.
The National Silver Haired Congress is a non-partisan, non-profit, grassroots organization of older Americans
(age 60+) recognized and encouraged by a Joint Resolution of the US Congress in 1994. The National Silver Haired
Congress is similar in organization (maximum of 100 senators and 435 representatives) and employs procedures
comparable to those used by the US Congress. The National Silver Haired Congress provides information from seniors
across the country to the Congress to help inform them of the common needs of seniors across the country.
