This year has been the utmost challenge for our profession. We recognize that you and your staff are on the front lines working tirelessly to protect the residents in your care. To protect the health of our members, their residents, and staff, we have made the difficult decision to move our annual meeting and expo to a virtual event.

Attached is the PDF brochure filled with information on our keynote speakers, education sessions, networking opportunities, expo hall hours, and much more!

We salute you for your dedication to protect our most vulnerable population during this unprecedented time in long term care. We are proud to represent you and look forward to connecting in November!
