2023 NEHCC Call For Speakers:

Deadline to submit has been EXTENDED

Need a bit more time? Well, that’s fair

We’ve got a great pool of talks already awaiting review, but we want to have yours too! The new deadline is November 22, 2022– but this one is a hard deadline, since we’re going to need some time to read through these wonderful submissions and make those hard decisions.

What happens next?

What a great question!

After November 22, we’ll start the process of selecting talks and setting a schedule. We’ll first rank the talks using anonymized information about the submissions focusing on the content alone. That doesn’t finish the selection process, however. Choosing on content alone might leave us with three talks by the same person, or with poor representation from some aspects of our diverse community. After we’ve selected our first set of talks, we’ll do a second pass to intentionally shape a varied and representative group of speakers. The process takes time. We appreciate your patience.

Our goal is to contact every applicant during the last week of January 2023 to let you know one way or the other.

What are you waiting for?

Don’t wait until the last minute, unless that’s something that works well for you. (Fellow procrastinators of the world, unite!)

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.

Conference Keynote Speakers Celebrate Strengths

New England Home Care & Hospice Conference & Trade

There isn’t one type of patient or one type of caregiver that creates the home care difference. The advantage lies in the industry’s ability to adapt quickly and effectively, to respond to changing demands while continually delivering the highest quality care. The industry’s heroic response to COVID-19 proved how valuable that adaptation is for our patients and our communities. The 12th annual New England Home Care and Hospice Conference and Trade Show at Gurney’s Resort from May 11-13 at Gurney’s Resort in Newport, RI will highlight and celebrate the strength of home care and hospice.

Keynote speakers Bill Dombi, the President of the National Association for Home Care & Hospice, and Lindsay Doak, Senior Manager of Home Health Care at Berry Dunn, will delve into the 2021 Best Practices and Future Insights Study, physician and author Lynn Hallarman, MD will speak to the importance of direct caregivers and speaker Tyler Enslin of Direct Development Training will inspire attendees with his message of resilience and thriving in times of crisis.
