Dear VOICE ACCORD Attendees:
As previously announced, our 2020 ACCORD was moved from April to July 13, 2020, due the impossibility of safely meeting in-person because of COVID-19. While parts of the commonwealth are seeing fewer cases, there is still a serious concern about getting large groups of people together, even in July. For your safety and convenience, this year’s ACCORD will now be a virtual experience!
We will hear from our keynote speaker, Teepa Snow, in the morning. Then we will take a short break, and reconvene for two breakout sessions in the afternoon. While CEUs will be provided only to those who signed up to receive them (and who participate in the sessions), you are welcome to have multiple people in your location view the presentations through the link we will provide. Of course, if you have multiple people in a room to experience the virtual ACCORD, we encourage you to observe physical distancing recommendations and wear masks (our new reality!).
Here is a more detailed breakdown of the schedule for July 13:
- 8:30 am – Welcome and introductions
- 8:45 am – Teepa Snow
- 10:00 am – Break
- 10:15 am – Teepa Snow
- 11:30 am – Announcement
- 11:45 to 12:45 pm – Lunch
- 12:45 pm – “Cultivating a Culture of Compassion”, the competitive edge. Denise Borgoyn
- 1:45 pm – Break
- 2:00 pm – “Engaging the Aging” Jill Yesko
- 3:00 pm – Closing remarks, adjournment
CEU information, as well as the link for the day’s events, will be provided prior to the big event.
Thank you for your patience as we work to provide a great experience, while also keeping everyone safe in this current COVID-19 reality.
