Consumer Voice is seeking proposals to present at the 2020 Annual Conference.  We are looking for proposals for sessions that will create an engaging, informative conference agenda that provides resources, tools, opportunities for discussion, and strategies our attendees can incorporate in their life and/or advocacy. Proposals should include:

  • Concrete advocacy strategies,

  • Examples of advocacy and/or educational programs for individuals or systems advocacy,

  • Issues related to nursing homes, assisted living, and/or home and community-based services,

  • Opportunities for discussion, questions, and/or sharing of advocacy successes and challenges related to the topic, and

  • Information attendees can use in their daily life or work to improve the quality of long-term care.

All proposals must be submitted using SurveyMonkey. Proposals are due by April 3, 2020. Late or incomplete proposals will not be considered.

There are 2 easy steps to submit a proposal!

  1. Review the Call for Proposals and Presenter Requirements.
