rcpa conference

RCPA will host its annual conference at the Hershey Lodge on September 27–30, 2016. At this large-scale, statewide event, the RCPA board of directors wants to continue the important tradition of recognizing individuals and organizations/facilities for their dedication and commitment to service. The following award categories have been created for this event and recognition:

  1. RCPA Innovation Award. Presented to an individual or organization in recognition of significant innovation. Examples include cross-systems integration, physical/behavioral health integration, and implementation of new technologies. Up to three awards may be given in any year.
  2. Exemplary Service to RCPA Award. Presented to an individual or organization/facility that has shown a strong commitment and dedication in service to the association, its members, and related issues.
  3. Legislative Leadership Award. Presented to an individual who has shown significant leadership and commitment to government affairs and legislative issues, on behalf of RCPA and its members.
  4. Community Leadership Award. Presented to an individual in recognition of extending service and knowledge to the community at large, and efforts in helping the community understand the needs of individuals served by RCPA members. This can be for specific or short-term significant acts, or to recognize a career-long body of work.
  5. Lifetime Achievement Award. Presented to an individual in honor of his/her significant, consistent, and enduring contribution throughout his/her career in support and furthering of the field.

At this time, RCPA is accepting nominations through an open solicitation of members (e.g., designated contact person, CEOs/executive directors, staff) and RCPA committees. Members may nominate one or more individuals/organizations in one or more categories. Nominations will be reviewed by a sub-group of the board of directors to make recommendations for final selection and approval by the full board.

Include the name/organization (if applicable) of the nominee, the award category, and a statement about why you believe the individual/organization should be honored. Nominations should be made by Monday, May 16. Please send nominations to Cindy Lloyd.

Award recipients are not limited to RCPA members and every award may not be presented annually. Please join the association in continuing this tradition and in offering nominations for those who deserve recognition for their significant contributions.

It’s back – the RCPA PAC bowling tournament will take place on Thursday, October 8, 2015, during the annual conference. The bowling tournament is a great way to get together with friends and colleagues and support RCPA PAC. The minimum entry fee is $50 for an individual or $150 for a team registration. Teams are composed of three people.

Individual registrants are placed on teams, so those who want to bowl but don’t have a team may register and one will be formed for you! The tournament begins at 4:30 pm and finishes before the barbecue. For those teams who want to practice before the big competition, bowling alleys will be available on Tuesday, October 6 from 8:00 – 10:00 pm.

Everyone is welcome at the tournament to cheer on the bowlers. Come join the fun as a bowler or in the audience and support RCPA PAC! Email Jack Phillips or Tina Miletic for more information or to register to bowl.

PLEASE NOTE:
This is an RCPA PAC fundraiser. Only personal checks are accepted; no business checks or credit cards. No refunds for no-shows or cancellations. Substitutions are permitted.

As you have heard, registration is open for the 2015 RCPA Conference at Seven Springs, October 6 – 9. We hope you have plans to join us; the schedule is filled with excellent speakers.  We also know that you are being asked to register and pay for the conference at a time when many are feeling the tremendous negative impact of the delayed state budget.

For this reason, RCPA is offering full provider members the opportunity to register for the conference now and defer payment until after the state budget is passed, or an interim stopgap measure is in place (an emergency solution for which we continue to push). All attendees from full provider members are eligible for this offer.

To take advantage of this conference payment deferral offer, please complete a print version of the conference registration form. Do not register electronically through the online system, which requires payment to be collected. Rather, print and complete the form, noting your request for this deferral, and send it to Tieanna Lloyd in the RCPA office via fax to 717-364-3287 or email. RCPA will then invoice members 90 days after the budget is approved or a stopgap measure is in place to allow time for cash flow to stabilize.

We look forward to seeing you in October!
