The 62nd Spring Conference and Expo returns to the KI Convention Center & Hyatt Regency Hotel, located in the heart of Green Bay, Wisconsin, on April 10-12. The educational programming provides attendees with modern workforce solutions, innovative ideas on how to do more with less, data and information to handle critical financial matters, and fresh perspectives on post-acute care practices. Each session will take a deep dive into the matters that are urgent and pressing in today’s long term care landscape, while also sharing real-life practicum and implementation tools. This year, we go beyond the what and focus on the how. Attendees will be asked to reflect on their challenges, given opportunities to recharge their minds, and be fully supported to rediscover their strength.

It wouldn’t be a WHCA/WiCAL event without food and FUN! All participants – both attendees and exhibitors – receive an all-access pass to Conference. This includes invitation to attend all networking events. From the casual Opening Night Reception to the Expo to the Dueling Pianos, we hope all of our attendees & exhibitors take time to socialize and enjoy themselves.
