Conference updates: AAH makes it easier, Medtrade sets dates

Tuesday, March 28, 2017

AAHomecare has shortened and slashed the price of its Washington Legislative Conference this year. The conference will take place at the Washington Court Hotel on May 24 and 25, but events will conclude at 2 p.m. on May 24, giving attendees more time to conduct meetings on Capitol Hill. “Whether you’re an experienced, regular attendee of the conference or this is your first time attending, your direct, in-person engagement with legislators and their staff members is the most effective means to advocate for better public policy for HME,” the association stated in a press release. AAHomecare is offering a rate of $49 for members and $99 for non-members this year, half the cost of last year’s conference. To increase the buzz around the conference, the association is encouraging stakeholders to share why they feel attending is so important on social media using #AAHWLC17.
