  • Complete any assigned reading – typically 4 or 5 books during the year – and be prepared to discuss on conference calls;
  • Participate in a majority of scheduled conference calls and activities, including an event hosted by AHCA/NCAL leadership at the AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention & Expo, which will be held October 15 – 18 in Las Vegas, NV;
  • Demonstrate an interest in working on LTC issues at the national level, which may include participating on AHCA/NCAL workgroups or committees; and
  • Consider active participation in the AHCA PAC and promoting its importance to other members.

AHCA will absorb the costs related to the 2016/2017 “Future Leaders of Long Term Care in America” symposium, including a two-night hotel stay, airfare, and a fixed stipend of $100.00 for miscellaneous travel expenses.

Once you have discussed the responsibilities and requirements with your nominee, please submit a resume and a brief statement explaining why he or she would like to participate in the program by May 31 to Keith Hare.  VHCA-VCAL will then nominate one individual to represent Virginia.
