Preparing for 2019 Events, Activities and Membership Benefits for THCA Business Members
A ‘Preparing for 2019” informational e-mail was previously disseminated to all 2018 Business Member/Representatives. As a reminder, here’s a follow-up on that correspondence:
Capital Visits: Be an Active Advocate for Long Term Care before the Texas Legislature. “Every Voice Counts!”: With the 86th Texas Legislature now in session, this is a key time for all long term care professionals, Providers and Business Members, to unite, be as informed as possible, and reach out to our Texas Legislators. Take advantage of walking the halls of the Texas Capitol with your clients/potential clients and visit with members of the Texas Legislature and/or their Healthcare staff to educate them on long term care as it relates to operators and the businesses that provide services and products to them – share your stories. A Capitol Visit Day for THCA Business Members is also being scheduled. Scot Kibbe, THCA’s Director of Government Relations, will be in contact with more information as schedules and details are finalized.
THCA Region Meetings: THCA Region Chairs host Regional Meetings in each of their respective areas across the state for long term care providers. This is an excellent and exclusive opportunity for THCA Associate Business Members/Representatives to attend, sponsor and/or partner with THCA’s Education Foundation to provide an informative educational presentation with Continuing Education Credit for attendees. If you are not familiar with the THCA Regional meetings and would like to learn more, contact Megan Reed, THCA’s Director of Membership Outreach.
THCA-Education Foundation – “Call for Presentations”: We recognize that THCA Business Members have a wealth of knowledge in areas that long term care providers have a need or interest in knowing. As such, this opportunity provides your company with the ability to share that knowledge before an audience of long term care operators. Call for Presentations submissions by THCA Business Members receive priority when selection on topics identified as needed are made. If your company has an interest in providing and educational offering at a THCA hosted meeting or conference, this is your opportunity to submit a presentation for consideration and possible selection. All submission are due by January 31st. Go to https://txhca.org/seasonal_event/2019-call-for-presentations-now-open for more information. Questions? Contact Angela Torres, THCA’s Professional Development Director.
