It is our pleasure to invite you to join us from May 13 to 15 for our 2008 Annual Meeting and Convention.
This year's theme, Everyday Heroes, reflects the people who live, work and participate in the long term care sector. These are the heroes in our midst - from the residents who have lived long and storied lives and contributed so much to society, to the staff who are often the unsung heroes quietly making a difference in the lives of others, to the organizations that are committed to enhancing and expanding not-for-profit services for seniors.
Our exciting line up of keynote speakers - LGen Roméo Dallaire, Dr. Mark Nowaczynski and Dr. Linda Duxbury - will draw on experiences and perspectives that will be sure to resonate with participants and bring new dimensions to our theme of everyday heroes.
You will have the opportunity to customize your learning plan by choosing from an exceptional selection of education sessions designed to keep you informed about timely issues and developments and inspire you with fresh perspectives, new thinking and practical ideas.
Our sold out trade show will showcase innovative technology that is transforming care and service delivery and the latest products and equipment that will help move your organization forward.
We continually hear from delegates that networking is the number one reason for attending convention and this year's event will offer plenty of opportunities to reconnect with friends and colleagues.
Our members know how to work hard and play hard! You'll get to break out your boas and strap on your dancing shoes as professional dancers perform moves from around the world at our Rhythm of the Night gala evening.
We look forward to seeing you at Convention 2008! For more information and to register, see http://www.oanhss.org/staticcontent/staticpages/education/Convention2008/index.html
