Join Us for NCIL’s Pre-Conference Session on DOL’s Proposed Companionship Rules and their Impact on Independent Living!

Are you concerned about the proposed companionship rules proposed by the Department of Labor?

Prevail - 2014 Conference LogoSign-up for NCIL’s Pre-Conference Session on Sunday, July 27! With sessions like the Pre-Conference on the proposed companionship rules and the latest details on the Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA), you can’t afford to miss this year’s NCIL Conference!

The Pre-Conference will focus on the US Department of Labor’s proposed companionship rules, Direct Care Worker overtime, the ACA insurance mandate, and how they could affect people with disabilities, our attendants, and Centers for Independent Living.

The Pre-Conference will be broken down into two parts. We will begin with an in-depth working session designed to help participants understand the impact of the companionship rule changes on their state’s system for providing community-based long-term services and supports, with an opportunity for participants to interact directly with DOL staff and other experts. Then we will explore strategies for minimizing the negative impact of the rule changes on people with disabilities – particularly those at risk of institutionalization, our attendants, and CILs.

If you’re already registered for NCIL’s Conference, then you can attend the Pre-Conference at no additional charge. But if you haven’t signed up yet, now is the time.

See you in July!
