The National Homecare Cooperative Conference is an annual event that welcomes homecare workers from across the country to discuss marketing, communications, human resources, pay, and other developments within the industry. The Conference also provides participants with the opportunity to learn about the cooperative model and how it can be beneficial to the homecare industry.
