Albany -- One of South Georgia's leading advocates for the elderly will help in drawing up new legislation to protect senior citizens.

Kay Hind will be one of 12-hundred delegates for next week's White House Conference on Aging. The executive director for the Southwest Georgia Council on Aging, Hind will make recommendations on issues concerning older people.

This conference is held every ten years, and this will be the fourth Hind attends as delegate. She says this the most important one yet. Hind said "With so many people living longer, the baby boomers all about to get mature, I think we are going to be making a lot of decisions."

Hind will leave Sunday for Washington D.C.

The White House Conference will last through Wednesday, and will be attended by the President and most legislators.
