71st AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo Will Be A Virtual Event.

Every year we look forward to seeing many of you at the AHCA/NCAL Convention & Expo. The COVID-19 pandemic has presented our profession with extraordinary challenges, and we have been analyzing the feasibility of continuing to hold convention as planned, factoring in travel bans, social distancing mandates, limits to the size of gatherings, and the uncertainty of the virus numbers in the fall. 

We recognize that you and your staff are on the front lines working tirelessly to protect the residents in your care. This will likely continue until there is an effective vaccine, viable therapeutic, and/or an organized contact tracing program. To protect the health of all attendees, as well as your residents and staff back home, AHCA/NCAL has decided to offer the 71st Convention & Expo as a virtual event.

Although this decision will change the way we gather this year, we know that it is still necessary and important to share experiences and knowledge with each other during this challenging time. AHCA/NCAL is committed to working with you, as well as faculty, sponsors, exhibitors, and other stakeholders, to deliver an impactful, engaging, and valuable experience this fall. Complete details will be shared in June.

We salute you for your unwavering efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens during this stressful and unprecedented time in long term and post-acute care. We are proud to represent you in Washington, D.C., and we look forward to connecting with you in October.
