Virtual Conference Registration Is Open!

Join us for the LeadingAge Nebraska Virtual Annual Meeting & Exhibit Show on October 12-15! Held only in the afternoons, you will have the opportunity to participate in live-stream keynotes & education sessions, virtually stroll through the exhibit hall, hang out in the networking lounge and more!
Take advantage of our current offer, which is good through September 30th: Register 4, get the rest FREE. This is a great opportunity to give most of your staff the opportunity to participate in the virtual conference. Once you have 4 registered from your facility, a coupon code will be sent to the facility administrator that can be used to register an unlimited number for FREE. Email natalie.mccormick@leadingagene.org if you have questions!
CEUs offered for both live and on-demand sessions! 9 hours of nursing, administrator and CBDM CEUs are offered for the live conference. Both nursing contact hours and administrator CEUs are also offered for the on-demand sessions, up to 23 hours.
  • If attendees attend all sessions at the live conference and fill out evaluations for every session attended, live CEU certificates (9 hours) will be sent out at the conclusion of the live conference.
  • However, if you miss one or more of the live sessions, you will still qualify for CEUs for any sessions attended as on-demand CEs. These have the same value as live CEUs; they are just awarded differently. Any registrant may view sessions on-demand to earn additional CEUs, up to 23 hours. When the on-demand period ends on December 10, we will send certificates of completion for all on-demand sessions attended (one certificate per one hour of on-demand sessions attended). Evaluations of on-demand sessions must be completed to qualify for nursing hours.
  • Nursing: Continuing Education Contact Hours awarded by Iowa Western Community College, Iowa Board of Nursing Provider #6.
There are sessions for everyone--administrators, nurses, assisted living-specific, dietary/dining, activities and more!

As an added bonus, the cost of the virtual conference is 25% less than the 2019 Fall Conference price. Combined with the added benefit of no extra time, travel or hotel costs, this is a really good way to network and get CEUs!

We look forward to connecting virtually with you in October!
