2022 In-Person & Virtual Conference


Join us in Baltimore, Maryland November 14-16, 2022 at the Lord Baltimore Hotel to reconnect in person.  Over the pandemic, we've learned how important it is to connect face-to-face, build relationships, learn from each other, and create connections.  With COVID-19 safety measures in mind, we are ready to come together again as a community of advocates.

For those unable to join us in person, virtual conference programming will be December 8-9, 2022.  New live sessions, as well as select recorded programs from the in-person conference will be available. (Note: Registration to the in-person conference also gives you access to the virtual programming). Read FAQs for the virtual conference.

At the 2022 In-Person & Virtual Conferences, you will:

  • Listen to key experts at the federal level discuss the latest policy updates;
  • Hear the voice of long-term care consumers;
  • Connect with advocates nationwide and learn about best practices;
  • Gain skills relevant to your work; and
  • Return to your state and community revitalized and equipped with new tools to put your systems and individual advocacy into action!

See the preliminary in-person agenda.

Virtual agenda is forthcoming.
