Be sure not to miss our signature event, our 3-4 day annual convention, held each summer and jam-packed with the latest information, networking opportunities, and an exposition featuring the products and services you are seeking! Our convention includes a variety of educational tracks and sessions for affordable housing, CCRCs/retirement communities, nursing homes, assisted living, and home and community-based service providers, with the opportunity to earn more than 20 contact hours! Pre-convention sessions include a strategic visioning and preceptor training. In addition, awards and honors are presented and ideas are exchanged. Members can also participate in our annual membership meeting. While we work hard, there is also time for play (and networking), from a "fun night" to a golf tournament. And that’s not to mention the opportunity to snag great deals at our silent auction (a fundraiser for our scholarship program) and win prizes at the exposition and other events!
