Dear MHCA Members,

Every year we look forward to seeing you at the MHCA Annual Convention & Trade Show. This year, the COVID-19 pandemic has presented our profession with so many extraordinary challenges. Over the past couple months, we have been analyzing the feasibility of continuing to hold our annual convention as planned, factoring in COVID outbreaks in Missouri, the re-opening status of our nursing homes, social distancing mandates, travel restrictions, and most importantly, maintaining the safety of the residents we serve.

We recognize that you and your staff are on the front lines working tirelessly to protect the residents in your care. We are uncertain when our nursing homes will begin the process of re-opening and how it will be implemented in Missouri.Therefore, taking into consideration all these factors and with the goal of protecting the health of our members as well as their residents and staff, MHCA has decided to cancel our in-person 2020 Annual Convention and Trade Show.

However, there is some good news! We are working on ways to bring you the valuable information, education offerings, CEUs and the vendor/business partner access you have during our in-person Conventions through a “Virtual” offering. Although this decision will change the way we gather this year, we know that it is necessary and important to continue to share experiences and knowledge with each other during this challenging time. MHCA and your Events & Education Committee are committed to delivering an impactful, engaging, and valuable “convention” experience this fall. Complete details will be shared in the coming weeks.

We cannot thank you enough for your unwavering efforts to protect our most vulnerable citizens during this stressful and unprecedented time in long term care.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to Michelle Walters, MHCA Director of Education, Meetings & Events. Thank you.
Nikki Strong
Executive Director
