For those of you who participated in the 8th Annual IDA Policy Update, you heard a lot of information and many issues were identified. We know there was not a lot of time for processing and discussion of potential next steps regarding how to address the identified issues. So the IDA Policy Committee is offering you some time to do that on February 9 from 12:00pm - 1:00pm via Zoom. Info will be sent to those that attend this event AFTER the event on Monday.

Join us to hear and discuss current policies and regulations that providers need to know in 2023 at the Federal, State and Local Levels.
