National Caregiving Conference Agenda!


National Caregiving Conference Agenda!

We've got our preliminary lineup of workshops, presentations and panel discussions for our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference! Our conference workshops will take place on Friday, November 9, and Saturday, November 10, at the Chicago Marriott O’Hare.

This year, we've added training programs and an evening reception on Thursday, November 8. We've also added post-conference workshops, including a boot camp for caregiving start-ups, on November 11. Our evening reception on November 8 will honor recipients of our Caregiving Visionary and Family Caregiver of the Year awards.

Check out the preliminary agenda, which features the voices of family caregivers and former family caregivers throughout our conference. We've got a full day of conference workshops on Friday, November 9, which challenge you or calm you -- your choice. We'll spend the day on Saturday sharing, supporting and having some fun.

We've created an event that you take charge of so that you get what you want and need. Spend the day in sessions or divide your time between the sessions and our Exhibitor floor.

Our agenda is just the start! We've got more to share, including details about our Caregiving Pitch Event, help so you can get a break to join us, a contest to choose our keynote speaker (it could be you!) and our list of restaurants for our Saturday evening. So, stay tuned!
