    Our next Day-in-Topeka and Board of Adult Care Home Administrators (BACHA) Board meeting is scheduled for Friday, December 14, 2018. We will meet at Rasmussen College, 620 Governor View, Topeka, KS 9:00 am until 3 pm.


    As of January 22, 2015 new AITs will be required to participate in at least one "Day-In-Topeka" session. These sessions coincide with the BACHA meetings and participants have the opportunity to observe BACHA proceedings as well as receive an introduction to a number of agency and association partners in the adult care field.


    Our Day begins with "Infomercials" by as many of the Long-Term Care Network who are available. Some of these people/organizations include KDADS, Kansas Long-Term Care Obudsman Office, LeadingAge Kansas, Kansas Health Care Association [KHCA/kcal], State Surveyors. This also gives you an opportunity to meet other AITs face-to-face and "compare notes."


    Our agenda includes Lunch on KACE. After lunch we return to Rasmussen College to observe a meeting of the BACHA Board [Board of Adult Care Home Administrators] This group is the regulatory Board for all administrators & always has some interesting topics to discuss.


    If an administrator has been the subject of a formal complaint, a sub-committee of the BACHA Board called the Complaint Investigatory Committee will meet & conduct a hearing regarding the allegations, right before we adjourn for lunch. While this is an unfortunate situation, if it happens, it is a good experience for future administrators to be familiar with this process.


    Our Day begins at 9 AM & we will adjourn no later than 3 PM. Your Preceptor is Welcome to join you in this valuable day's experience.

    Join other KACE members in January 2019 for the 

    CE @ Sea cruise! 



     


    Royal Caribbean-Majesty of the Seas, 4-day cruise
    Port of Departure: Fort Lauderdale, Florida
    Destination: Havana, Cuba and Nassau, Bahamas
    January 24-28, 2019
    Cost: $750/KACE Member; $650/Companion*


     


    6 hours of CEUs will be offered (3 hours via webinar prior to the cruise and 3 hours on the ship.) (This event is approved for up to 6.0 continuing education clock hours for adult care home administrators and registered operators by the Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services (LTS#A1427) in the core area of Administration.) 


    *This includes the cruise with double occupancy in an interior (Category 4V) cabin as well as continuing education for members. [If only one person is in a cabin, the single would pay $1,230.00.] All rates are inclusive of taxes and fees. 


    Upgrades to an exterior cabin are possible based on current pricing and availability. If you plan to upgrade, you are encouraged to register early.


    WHAT YOU WILL NEED: 


    1. You will need your actual passport book if you are traveling to Cuba--passport cards, birth certificates and driver’s licenses are not sufficient documentation. Make sure you check the expiration date on your passport, too. It needs to be valid for six months after your sail date. 


    2. Anyone going ashore in Cuba needs a Cuban visa. You might also hear this called tarjeta turistica (“tourist card”), visitor card, or entry card. Royal Caribbean can process the Cuban visa for you at the pier for $75 per person, but you're free to get your own as long as you have it ahead of your sailing. 


    3. When you reserve a cabin, a deposit of $200 ($100 per person) is required.  Open registration is from June 6, 2018-July 6, 2018. Full payment is required by September 15, 2018.


    4. All participants will be required to fill out a form from the cruise line once your cruise is reserved.
