2013 VHCA/VCAL Convention & Trade Show a Great Success

Over 500 long term care professionals gathered in Roanoke last week to recognize the best and brightest that enable Virginia’s nursing and assisted living facilities to deliver truly outstanding post-acute and long term care services. Members attended dynamic and informative education sessions while 117 exhibitors showcased the latest and best products and services to trade show visitors.  Community involvement award winners, volunteers, departing Board members and the top five statewide award recipients were honored at the Annual Banquet.  Additionally, 76 golfers and tournament sponsors supported the Regirer Nurse Scholarship Fundraiser Tournament to raise funds for future scholarship awards. The Virginia Health Care Association and the Virginia Center for Assisted Living would like to thank the many organizations and individuals who contributed to the success of the 2013 Convention and Trade Show.  Thanks to our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, and golfers who made the 2013 Convention & Trade Show such an outstanding event!
