Elevating the Post-Acute and
Long Term Care Profession

Get involved with Your Association!

The Association welcomes -- and encourages -- member participation in the process of identifying, evaluating and recommending action on the various policies, rules and other forces impacting long-term care.

Committees and other Association groups provide many opportunities for members to become involved, and to benefit from the significant access to information and resources available through this participation.

Association committees are open to any interested member.

We invite you to review the following list of committees and consider becoming involved in the areas where you can share your experience. In consideration of members' time, OHCA holds many meetings by conference call, and we often solicit committee members' input via email.
