Senior Legal Hotline/Helpline Manager’s Group Calls 

On the 3rd Thursday of every other month (January, March, May) at 2pm, the senior legal hotline/helpline managers group meets to discuss relevant topics.  This include technology tips to what new types of issues are we seeing on the hotlines.  In this past year, we have talked about client agreements, data reporting, and decedent debt.   

National Association of Senior Legal Hotlines Meetings 

On the alternating 3rd Thursday of every other month (February, April), at 2pm, the National Association of Senior Legal Hotlines holds its meetings to share information on topics like grant opportunities, management of volunteers, and the Older Americans Act Reauthorization.  There is usually a guest presenter who shares information about their services so that we can make better referrals for our clients.   

Coming up next year will be a conversation with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau regarding trends in cases dealing with seniors and a conversation with the Administration for Community Living on the role of hotlines in integrated systems.  We are already planning the topics for next year, so if you have a topic you would like discussed, please let Keith Morris know.
