Become a Sponsor for CANHR’s 2023 Elder Law Conference!

California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform is holding its 26th Annual Elder Law Conference on November 17th and 18th, 2023 in Monterey, CA and on Zoom.

CANHR’s Elder Law Conference, the only conference of its kind in California, was first held in 1996.  Since that time, the conference has provided high quality legal education and training on elder law issues to over 3,000 members of the private bar, the legal services community, and other long-term care advocates representing elders, persons with disabilities and their families. 

Based on the success of last year’s hybrid conference, our 2023 event will be presented both in-person and online. The conference will focus on key issues in estate planning for long term care and the latest litigation cases that could affect your practice. 

Please consider becoming a sponsor for CANHR’s 2022 Elder Law Conference to help us continue the fight for justice for long term care consumers and educate the next generation of elder law advocates!
