18th Annual SHIP Directors' Conference
The 18th Annual SHIP Directors' Conference is an opportunity for SHIP Directors
and staff to network with colleagues, share replicable activities and initiatives,
discuss lessons learned, discuss important policy and advocacy issues with officials
from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and others, and learn
about new Medicare programs and initiatives. This year's conference will be held
June 4–7, 2012 at The Marriott Marquis in Atlanta, Georgia.
Registration for this conference is free.
This year's conference agenda will feature a mix of plenary, breakout, and roundtable
sessions organized around several tracks.
Like conferences in previous years, this conference will be a paperless conference.
All abstracts, speaker bios, and presentation materials will be posted on this Web
site as soon as they are received. Copies of presentation materials will not be
distributed at the conference. Attendees are encouraged to print in advance any
presentation materials that they want to have at the conference. After the conference,
presentation materials that are 508 compliant will be posted online at this site
