I&R Center: Call for Sessions Open for the 2021 HCBS Conference

Dear Aging and Disability I&R Professionals,

ADvancing States is pleased to share that the call for sessions for the 2021 Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) Conference is open.

For the last 36 years, the HCBS Conference has convened state and federal agencies around improving systems that deliver long-term services and supports (LTSS) for all ages and abilities. The HCBS Conference attracts more than 1,500 attendees from over 50 states and territories and highlights best practices from across the country in home and community-based services.

ADvancing States seeks original, thought-provoking, educational sessions that enable national attendees to learn about creative approaches, new ideas, innovative models, and emerging trends in the landscape of LTSS programs and HCBS service delivery, as well as topics that address the pressing issues facing aging and disability programs.

The 2021 HCBS Conference will be a hybrid virtual / in-person event. We are currently accepting in-person and virtual session proposals. You will be able to select your preferences on the session submission form. The specific dates and location of the 2021 Conference will be announced in the upcoming weeks, please reserve your calendar for the beginning of December 2021.

Thank you,

Nanette Relave
