NPA knows that networking has always been a valuable part of your conference experience. While we are unable to meet in person for this year's annual conference, we have set up a networking component to the conference.
Networking sessions will include the following experiences:

  • "Ask the Expert” Sessions: Conducted by NPA staff and other knowledgeable members of the PACE community.
  • Peer Sessions: Conference attendees can meet with other PACE staff in their same role to discuss their challenges and work.
  • Hot Topics in PACE 
  • General Networking

These networking sessions will provide attendees the opportunity to connect with others from PACE programs around the country and share dialogue in a more relaxed format. Facilitators for these sessions will be encouraging discussion but not preparing a formal presentation, while some will be self-facilitated through discussion prompts. The sessions will be conducted through Zoom.
Networking opportunities will be offered through Nov. 20. These opportunities are only available to conference attendees, who can obtain links to register or join through the conference website.

Design Your Own Topic

NPA offered the opportunity for attendees to offer their own topics for discussion through an interactive poll that solicited ideas and allowed others to up-vote. The sessions with the highest number of votes have been selected and the following will be offered. If your session topic was not selected, please consider registering for "Networking with Your PACE Peers" for an opportunity to raise those topics with your colleagues.

  • Leadership succession
  • Fostering safe, welcoming and inclusive environments for diverse staff and participants
  • How to offer several types of religious programming for participants
  • Streamlining IDT meetings
  • Self care for staff and participants
  • Caregiver recruitment
  • Staffing during COVID (attrition, recruitment and more)
