An Exploring PACE membership is a one-year program designed to assist organizations in assessing needs, developing strategies, and making the decision whether or not to proceed with PACE development. 

Membership Benefits

The benefits of an Exploring PACE membership includes an understanding of the PACE model and the ability to assess your capability to develop a PACE program. 

  • Publications and Resources: Publications and resources designed specifically for Exploring PACE members are available in the Developing PACE section of the website. 
  • Technical Assistance: The NPA staff is available to provide general assistance. In-depth technical assistance is available through our TAC members. Fees for these services vary and are payable directly to the TAC.
  • Strategic Planning: The NPA staff will work with your leaders to assess how PACE fits into the strategic plan of your organization and to define the challenges and opportunities of PACE.
  • Federal Policies: The NPA newsletter, timely updates and online resources will keep you up to date on emerging issues, trends and federal regulations so you can be proactive in preparing to meet upcoming challenges. 
  • Targeted Learning Experiences: Join with other Exploring PACE members to learn from experts in the field. The NPA Annual Conference, which is held in the fall, is the only event of its kind dedicated to the unique needs of organizations that are exploring, developing, operating, or expanding PACE. Other periodic events address timely issues, such as emerging federal regulations. Monthly teleconferences are targeted to various disciplines and feature practical information in an easily accessible format.
  • Peer-to-Peer Learning: Discipline-specific list serves provide your staff with opportunities to address questions and discuss issues directly with their peers. Through our online Membership Directory, you can identify and contact NPA members to discuss issues or questions that arise during your exploration of PACE.
  • PACE: The Future of Long-Term Care: This video is an informative tool that can be used to educate organizational and community leaders, government officials and potential partners about the PACE benefit.
