Speaker Call for Presentations

HCAC accepts speaker proposals on a year-round basis.

Your presentation will be considered for HCAC's annual conference, or other education events throughout the year. Proposals will be evaluated on their relevance to practice, cohesiveness and appropriateness for the target audience.

Topics of interest always include leadership, vision, quality management, occurrence reporting, resolution process, personnel qualifications, financial management, ethics in healthcare, needs of the fragile/ill, wound care, behavior management, staff training, recruiting & retention, brain health, hospice, bereavement, private pay agency issues, and marketing strategies. These are suggestion and not meant to limit submissions in any way. Absolutely no commercial sales or marketing presentations of any kind will be permitted.

For 2018: Speaker Proposals Due Nov. 16 for HCAC's Spring 2018 Conference:

Q3: Quality of Care, Quality at Work, Quality at Home. ' Conference Will Be May 16-18. Submit your proposal before the Nov. 16 deadline!

The Home Care Association of Colorado's Education Committee requests compelling speaker proposals for the 2018 Home Care, Home Health & Hospice Conference.
The 2018 conference will be attended by hundreds of provider agencies in Colorado, Wyoming and adjacent states. An accompanying trade show will include interactive demonstrations from vendors from around the nation.
HCAC seeks the following:

  • Engaging keynote presenters who can enlighten our provider members in a time of great industry change
  • Breakout presenters addressing:
    • Private pay issues
    • Technology
    • Non-Medical issues
    • Regulatory and compliance
    • NEW FOR 2018: A one-day therapy track addressing the special needs of physical therapists and others practicing in a home-health setting
  • Pre-conference proposals for Wednesday afternoon. Pre-conference sessions typically each cover four hours and so are especially good for topics requiring a "deeper dive" in a workshop-style format. They require separate attendee registration.

What's needed

Submissions are expected to include a summary of Proposed Session (Note: this session description may be used in conference marketing and brochure; please limit to 150 words).
Additionally, three Learning Objectives must be provided. (Note: These learning objectives will be a critical component of granting education credit. Hint: Learning objectives should identify what the participant will get out of the session. Write objectives that complete one of these two sentences: (1) “By participating in this workshop, participants will . . .” or (2) “On completion of this session, participants will be able to . . .”)
HCAC's Education Committee will review the submissions after the Nov. 16 deadline and make its recommendations to HCAC's board. The association expects to announce the education schedule and open registration on or just after Jan. 1, 2018.
