PARCR Meeting Procedures

8/27/2020 - PARCR Admin

The PARCR Executive Committee and the Task Force subcommittee have developed the format for our virtual Zoom Quarterly Meeting which will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Community Delegates and Individual Members will be sent an Invitation Notice and Agenda which will outline the registration process and the highlights of the meetings program and agenda.

The meeting will begin at 10:00 AM and run approximately 1½ hours. The focus of the meeting will be the presentation “Technology Trends in CCRCs” by our speaker, Corey Miller, Director of Information Services at Cross Keys Village. Corey’s presentation will be followed by a brief Q&A session. We will have an update from Anne Henry of LeadingAge PA also followed by a brief Q&A session.

IMPORTANT DETAIL: The Delegates and Individual Members who register by the deadline date will be sent the link to enter and participate in the meeting. As participants are welcomed into the meeting, their attendance will be monitored, and the membership roll will be taken. If a name does not appear on the membership/registration list, an individual will not be permitted to participate in the meeting.

It is the delegates’ responsibility to share information gathered at the PARCR meetings with their residents following each meeting and receipt of special bulletins. Individual residents of a community who wish to become a part of PARCR are encouraged to join the organization with an Individual Membership of $20. An application form is available on the PARCR website, www.parcr.org.

Thank you for your interest and participation in the offerings that PARCR provides for your community. You are an important liaison between PARCR and your community. Participants will be sent a survey which will help the Executive Committee in planning future meetings.

Nancy Hann
PARCR President

PARCR Meetings Take on a New Look and Procedure

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the PARCR Quarterly Meetings will be assuming a new appearance and a new procedure. In lieu of face-to-face meetings at host communities, PARCR will embark on a virtual Zoom meeting format beginning with the upcoming October 14, 2020 meeting. Community delegates and members will receive notice of the meeting, requesting an RSVP to this meeting. Included with the meeting notice will be an agenda; meeting time will run approximately 1¼ to 1½ hours. To those who reply with a positive response, a link will be sent prior to the meeting date that will allow PARCR members and delegates to join the meeting via Zoom. The host will allow the participants to enter the meeting. The program speaker will provide a presentation, then allow time for a Q&A session for attendees. Comments from LeadingAge will also be presented.

Moving Forward,
Nancy Hann
PARCR President

Bulletin 20-1: July 20, 2020

7/26/2020 - PARCR Admin

July 20, 2020

The Executive Committee of PARCR and a special planning committee have met through Zoom Meetings to discuss ways that we will be able to hold quarterly meetings with the membership during the COVID-19 Pandemic. We acknowledge that it is not feasible or possible for the group to meet face to face within any of our CCRC communities. We also realize that we will be faced with this situation for the foreseeable future. Therefore, we are evaluating alternative ways that will allow us to share the valued information presented in these meetings. Our program chair has engaged knowledgeable presenters to address topics that are pertinent to our members. The topic for the October Quarterly Meeting appropriately addresses the future of technology for senior living which has taken on an interesting twist and abrupt change with the pandemic.

We will keep you updated with notices in future bulletins of the process for registering and participating in the meeting presentation which will be by an invitation link through Zoom.

Remain strong and healthy,
Nancy Hann
PARCR President

July 8 Quarterly Meeting Cancelled

5/6/2020 - PARCR Admin

The PARCR Executive Committee has decided to cancel the July 8 Quarterly Meeting due to the concerns of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Gov. Wolf has extended stay at home until May 8. This is a target date and could change. It was also said any change will be a slow process and take time. It was also mentioned that gatherings should be limited. We would rather be safe than sorry as it was felt we needed to take precautions as seniors are more susceptible to infections from this disease.

We look forward to seeing all of you at future meetings.

Ida Jeanne Smith, PARCR President
