Prime Minister John Key is expected to speak to several hundred Nelson Grey Power members on Thursday.
The initiative for the meeting came from the Prime Minister's Office, Nelson Grey Power president Neville Male said.
There were several issues its older membership was concerned about including health, adequacy of housing, cost of living and superannuation, Mr Male said.
The meeting will be at the Annesbrook Church centre.
