While the NPA Spring Policy Forum was held live in April, it’s not too late to participate in the virtual event, which featured an exciting line-up of national leaders who shared their perspectives on the future of PACE in the political and policy environment. Registration will continue to be available through June 10 to access session recordings, presentations and additional resources.

The national line-up of speakers included Liz Fowler, PhD, JD, director of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation at CMS, and Daniel Schoeps, director of Purchased Long-Term Services and Supports in the VA Office of Geriatrics and Extended Care. You can view the complete list of speakers and full agenda on the event site. (Due to speaker requirements, the Congressional Staff View from the Hill panel was not recorded.)

For assistance with registration, including payment by check, contact Jessica Chan, manager of Association Services, at info@npaonline.org or 703-535-1565.

This virtual event replaces the in-person conference that originally was scheduled for March 22-23 in Washington, DC. While we are disappointed not to be able to meet in person as previously planned, we are committed to providing a valuable online educational experience.

Training Webinars on PACE Advocacy

NPA offered four virtual advocacy training sessions to help prepare members for requesting and leading Zoom meetings with their U.S. representatives and senators:

  • Become a PACE Advocate: An Advocacy Primer: An introductory training course on PACE-related advocacy designed for those without prior advocacy experience.
  • Bringing Your A-Game to Advocacy: Designed for seasoned advocates to ensure they bring their “A game” to every PACE-related advocacy effort.
  • Enhance Your PACE Advocacy by Incorporating Effective Storytelling: Tips for developing a PACE story to influence the decision-making of members of Congress and other elected officials and policy-makers.
  • Voicing the Promise of PACE Congressional Meeting Initiative: An overview of why PACE programs should seek meetings with their U.S. representative and senators in May, which is Older Americans Month, with materials developed by NPA to ensure attendees are fully prepared to participate in the initiative and advocate for the PACE model of care with their members of Congress.
