33rd Annual Convention
Tuesday October 19 - Friday October 22
After careful consideration, the PADONA Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to shift our 2021 conference to a virtual event. Unfortunately, the rising COVID – 19 case counts, increasing outbreaks in nursing homes (including those previously vaccinated), and limited vaccine efficacy for those of us vaccinated early in the campaign were all factors in this decision. Because of the vulnerable nature of the residents that our attendees care for and the great importance our long-term care nurse leaders play in the care of our Commonwealth seniors, we cannot in good conscience endorse an event that might further hasten the devastating impact to our seniors.
Please mark your calendars for our Spring 2022 Conference scheduled to be held at The Hotel Hershey from March 30 – April 1, 2022! We are hopeful that we can celebrate our healthcare heroes, in person at our spring conference!
Exhibitors can choose to roll your 2021 exhibitor registration into our 2022 Spring Conference. In doing so, you will be assured a spot in our spring conference at the 2021 exhibitor rates! You may also request a refund by contacting Candace Jones at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any refunds via PayPal will include a processing fee.
Attendees have three options regarding your paid conference registration fees.
- You can apply your 2021 conference registration to the cost of the virtual conference.
- You can credit your 2021 conference registration to our 2022 spring conference registration fee. This option will ensure that you attend the 2022 conference at the 2021 rates!
- You can request a refund of your 2021 conference registration. Any refunds through PayPal will include a processing fee.
You can contact Candace Jones at email@example.com with instructions regarding your registration fees.
PADONA is grateful to our members and business partners for their continued support!
Yours in Service,
PADONA Board Chair/Executive Director
