2020 Leadership and Advocacy Conference
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:
In an abundance of caution, NHPCO has decided not to hold the Leadership and Advocacy Conference and associated events scheduled for March 23 – 27 at the Gaylord National Harbor Resort and Convention Center and the MGM Hotel. While the LAC is a highlight of the year for our members and providers – and loved by our staff – we know that you must give your full attention to those that you care for and your broader community during this public health crisis. (Download our FAQ page with additional details).
NHPCO would like to share plans that are being put into place to make up for LAC20:
- NHPCO COVID-19 EXECUTIVE DIALOGUE – NHPCO is committed to helping our members respond effectively to patient and community concerns. To support our membership, and those who were planning to join us at LAC20, NHPCO is offering a complimentary webinar on March 25 to address the current public health crisis. The webinar will include emergency preparedness information, a review of the latest CDC recommendations and a conversation with your colleagues in the field with moderate to severe caseloads. Those registered for the LAC20 will receive more information on this COVID-19 Executive Dialogue with specific times and access information. NHPCO will also reach out to members who are not registered for LAC20 to share information about this important offering.
- ADVOCACY EVENT GOES VIRTUAL – We still plan to hold a Virtual Advocacy Day, with training sessions available remotely on Monday, March 23 and our Legislative Action Center open for business the entire week of March 23-27 with scripts for phone calls, email messages, letters to the editor, and social media posts. This Virtual Advocacy Day will be open to all NHPCO members, so please plan on having your whole team participate. We will be updating the Hospice Action Network website with details on participating in Virtual Advocacy Day as we finalize our plans.
- CONSIDER A CREDIT FOR AN UPCOMING CONFERENCE –NHPCO hopes that you will consider using your registration fee from LAC20 as a credit toward the 2020 Interdisciplinary Conference (October 10-14) or next year’s Leadership and Advocacy Conference (March 20 – 24, 2021). We can help arrange this or address other needs you might have, just contact us at LAC20@nhpco.org.
