About the training

When

ADvancing States Virtual Fall Member Meeting will occur December 1, 2020. The HCBS Conference will be hosted virtually over two weeks: December 2-3 and December 8-10, 2020. We are hosting the event over two weeks to accommodate time zones; we believe it is important the event not be pre-recorded, but live, so that you can interact with your peers just as you would if we were able to meet in person.

The agenda for each day will run from 12:00pm - 6:00pm ET, with additional fun, interactive activities and social events happening pre and post the official start and end agenda times. Speaking of fun, we even have arranged for the HCBS band to play a virtual concert for us live!

Where and How

The Virtual HCBS Conference will be hosted on a dazzling platform that mimics a real-life environment, simulating a physical event with a stunning virtual lobby, auditorium, and interactive spaces. This will enable attendees to navigate the virtual venue with ease in a visually rich environment that is fully customized and highly interactive.

Attendees will be able to watch, participate, and chat in all virtual sessions in the online environment by simply clicking a button. Attendees can also utilize the event mobile app on their phones for 1:1 networking, posting to the conference live social feed, and bookmarking favorite sessions (plus accompanying materials) in the agenda.
