Conference Overview

The New England Home Care and Hospice Conference is hosted by the six New England state home care and hospice associations, which collectively represent nearly 400 organizations. This regional conference is designed for senior and mid-level administrative and clinical staff. The conference features multiple keynote sessions, workshops, and intensive programs. Topics are designed to meet the needs of all agencies, including Medicare-certified, private duty, and hospices. The trade show is the largest home health and hospice expo in the Northeast.

Review Guidelines & Criteria

Each proposal is reviewed and evaluated according, with preference shown toward those that present:

  • Relevance to home care and hospice;
  • Identified objectives;
  • Timely or innovative topics;
  • The overall quality and a well-defined focus;
  • Practical application of materials;
  • Teaching/speaking experience of the presenter; and
  • Freedom from commercial bias

There is no limit to the number of proposals a presenter may submit. Proposals submitted by industry vendors are welcome. However, the content must be free from commercial bias. Vendors are encouraged to include providers in their programs as co-presenters or panel members.

If selected, we will be in contact for more details.

Tips for your presentation:

  • Content is king – If you want to impress the audience, pack your presentation with powerful content. 
  • Make it compelling – Our audience comprises administrators, support staff, clinicians, direct caregivers, and industry partners. Learning levels are diverse, with most participants being high-level/theoretical to mid-level/practical. 
  • Be authentic and vulnerable – Don’t be afraid to speak of failure and success.
  • Customize – Be sure your content truly speaks to the association audience and is customized to their unique situations.
  • Knowledge sharing is the most effective marketing – Sales pitches disguised as education will result in poor ratings and lost opportunities.

NOTE: Presentations must be educational. We understand that some of our speakers wish to network with attendees and showcase their services, but we kindly ask that your presentation not be a sales pitch. For this purpose, networking time will be made available to speakers, sponsors, and attendees. We appreciate your cooperation.

One thought on “Multiple Opportunities!

  1. Hi Leslie,

    I hope you can help answer a question for me regarding our Speaker Proposal submission for the conference in May.

    We submitted our proposal in early October through the Survey Monkey portal, but never received any sort of confirmation of our submittal. I am looking to see if you can at least let me know that our submission has been received.

    My company is Systems Engineering, and the title of our presentation is:
    Home Care and Hospice in the Digital Age: Striking the Balance between Security and Productivity for Mobile Workforces.

    Can you please give me some indication that this was received and is in the process of consideration?

    Thank you very much for your help!
