Online registration is now open for the 2021 NPA Spring Policy Forum, which will be held as a virtual event on Monday, April 12, at noon to 5:30 p.m. ET and Thursday, April 15, at noon to 5:30 p.m. ET. During the two days of sessions, attendees will learn about the Biden Administration, the new Congress, and other issues impacting the federal PACE policy environment.

To attend all live sessions, register no later than April 11. For assistance with registration, including payment by check, contact Jessica Chan, manager of Association Services, at or 703-535-1565. We highly recommend registering to attend the live sessions on April 12 and 15. While we plan to record the sessions to be available through June 10, not all sessions are available to be recorded.

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 will offer three virtual advocacy training sessions prior to the Spring Policy Forum. The training sessions are designed to prepare you for requesting and leading Zoom meetings with your U.S. representative or senators. The interactive sessions will take place at 1-3 p.m. ET on Friday, Feb. 26, and Friday, March 12, and 1-4 p.m. ET on Monday, March 29.

The Feb. 26 session is titled “Become a PACE Advocate: An Advocacy Primer.” This introductory training course on PACE-related advocacy is designed for those without prior advocacy experience. The March 12 session is titled “Bringing Your A-Game to Advocacy.” This training course is designed for seasoned advocates to ensure they bring their “A game” to every PACE-related advocacy effort.

The March 29 session is titled “Enhance Your PACE Advocacy by Incorporating Effective Storytelling.” Bradford Fitch, president and CEO of the Congressional Management Foundation, will lead this advocacy storytelling workshop. The interactive course will provide attendees with an opportunity to develop a PACE story to influence further the decision-making of members of Congress and other elected officials and policy-makers.

The training sessions are open to all NPA members. To register, please visit our Advocacy Resources webpage.
