2020 NPA Awards Program Nominations Postponed

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on NPA's event offerings for the fall, NPA has decided to postpone the nominations for the 2020 Marie-Louise Ansak Award, the 2020 Judy Baskins Volunteer Leadership Award and the 2020 Nurse of the Year Award until the 2021 Annual Conference.
If you have prepared nominations, kindly save these until we open the 2021 submission. The call for awards was inadvertently included in the last edition of Keeping the PACE. We are sorry for the confusion this may have caused.
If you have questions, please contact Venise Lewis, senior vice president of PACE Education and Learning, at VeniseL@npaonline.org.

Companies Donate Exhibit Fees

The National PACE Association (NPA) thanks StateServ Hospicelink and Tabula Rasa HealthCare, along with its companies CareKinesis, Capstone Performance Systems and Cognify, for donating their exhibit fees from the canceled 2020 NPA Spring Policy Forum in support of future NPA educational events. We are grateful for their continued support.


NPA offers professional meetings throughout the year. Held annually are the NPA Spring Policy Forum, the NPA Summer Conference (log-in required), and the NPA Annual Conference in the fall.

Interdisciplinary Teams in PACE

In partnership with Rush University Medical Center, NPA periodically offers Interdisciplinary Teams in PACE, an online training program that integrates academic education with experiential learning.

PACE Learning Series

The PACE Learning Series features monthly teleconferences hosted by NPA on a variety of topics of interest to PACE organizations and their staff.

PACE Leadership Training Program

PACE is a complex model of care that is growing faster than the number of trained or experienced PACE leaders. The need for PACE leadership training opportunities is paramount to the future success of each program and for PACE as a whole. Existing leaders often are promoted or hired prior to developing a solid foundation of skills and competencies needed for effective PACE leadership. To address this issue the National PACE Association, in partnership with On Lok PACEpartners, developed the PACE Leadership Training Program. Log into the website to learn more.
