Regions

Held in seven locations throughout the state, Region Forums are a great way to connect (and socialize) with other local providers while you get caught up on the latest Association news, issues, and critical information. You are welcome to attend any of the forums held across the state.




January 2019 Region Palooza—Details coming soon!

Join us for Region Palooza, a series of informative webinars January 14–17, 2019. In lieu of the 2019 January Region Forums being held at locations throughout the state, they will be presented as webinars.

Older & vulnerable adult protection initiatives
The 2019 legislative preview
Program & rate updates for HCBS members
Behavioral/mental health training for all settings

Stay tuned for dates & registration information!
