Consider facilitating a THCA Education Foundation activity.

Each year THCA invites members, long-term care providers, consultants, professors, state and federal experts, and others skilled at presenting, engaging audiences, and effectively delivering learning objectives to apply.

Absolutely no sales pitches! Direct promotion of the speaker’s company, services or products is not appropriate for education sessions. The THCA Education Foundation is an approved provider of continuing education and follows ANCC Standards for Integrity and Independence in Accredited Continuing Education which protects learners from promotion, marketing, and commercial bias. In addition, participants are sensitive to sales approaches and prefer to learn about innovative ideas and solutions to current issues surrounding their work in long-term care.

The 2023 call for presentations is closed. Selected presenters will be notified by mid February.
