Thank you for your interest in forming an HCAOA Chapter! As a membership organization, we rely on member-leaders like yourself to ensure that we are delivering attentive service and effective advocacy to home care providers across the nation. Please fill out the below information so we can assess the best way to proceed in establishing an HCAOA Chapter in your state
The following activities must be discussed and planned within the next 12 months:
- Town Hall Meeting – This meeting is the first step in organizing a chapter. Not only is it the initial introduction of HCAOA, it also serves as a forum for providers to voice their concerns regarding any legislative/regulatory issues in their state and helps HCAOA develop a partnership with the Chapter in laying out plans for the year. This event is also an opportunity to recruit new members. Below is a snapshot of for a Town Hall Meeting:
- Welcome – Chapter Organizer
