The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA) proudly presents its 2023 – 2028 Strategic Plan.

This report was made possible through the more than 4,200 elder and disability law attorneys in NAELA’s membership who provided financial support through annual dues, survey insight, and countless hours of pro bono volunteer service to develop this plan. Thank you



In addition to the volunteers listed below, NAELA would like to thank Michael J. Amoruso, Fellow, CAP, for his leadership in launching the 2022-23 strategic planning process, planning facilitators Steve Swafford, Ph.D. and Jill McCrory, D.Min. of Leadership Outfitters, LLC, and data scientist Kevin Whorton, M.A., of Whorton Research who conducted the national survey and data analysis.
