Dates and tentative hours for PCC's Virtual Annual Conference

The PCC’s 2020 Virtual Annual Conference will bring together top leaders from all major stakeholder groups who are passionate about making primary care better and more equitable – an endeavor even more pressing given the challenges our country is currently facing. Join hundreds of your fellow primary care leaders online from wherever you are for this highly interactive virtual conference!

This year’s momentous events – the pandemic, the economic downturn, the renewed conversations about racial and health inequities, and the November election – all have the potential to impact and be catalysts for changes in primary care. That’s what makes this year’s conference even more significant. It is our chance to come together as PCC Executive Members and leaders along with other leaders in the primary care community and to put ourselves on the leading edge of reimaging primary care and shaping its future.

Visit the conference website for more information and the definitive details.

PCC Executive Members and invited guests are welcome to join us for the PCC’s 2020 workshop. This half-day session will bring together PCC Executive Members along with state leaders, policymakers, and advocates to explore the next wave of state-level efforts to measure and set targets for levels of primary care investment.

Through panels, virtual peer networking and small group discussions, the workshop will highlight best practices and provide space for attendees to connect across regions and stakeholder types and discuss shared agendas for advancing investment in primary care in 2021 and beyond. See the tentative agenda.

This year’s workshop will also include the release of the PCC’s 2020 Evidence Report that tracks primary care spend over time nationally and across all 50 states.

Who may attend

For PCC Executive Members: As a benefit of your membership, the cost to attend the workshop is free when you register for the PCC’s 2020 Virtual Annual Conference, which is taking place on the two days before the workshop (November 30 and December 1). However, there is a limit of two staff members per Executive Member at the workshop. Executive Members will not be allowed to register to attend the workshop alone. You must register for each event separately; registering for one event does not automatically register you for the other. (Check to see if your organization is a PCC Executive Member.)

Non-PCC members: Cost is $100. You are encouraged to attend the virtual annual conference before the workshop (November 30-December 1). The workshop is designed as a hands-on application of the topics that will be addressed during the conference, a way to chart a course of action in states in the conference topic areas.

Workshop registration is limited to 125 total participants.
