Associate Membership


The North Carolina Health Care Facilities Association (NCHCFA) is a nonprofit trade association of skilled nursing care centers located throughout North Carolina.  Started in 1955 and representing 90% of the skilled nursing and post-acute care centers in the state, NCHCFA is the state’s oldest and largest association of post-acute and long term care providers. Because we provide our members with current information relevant to long term health care, NCHCFA serves as a central link of communication for facilities statewide.

An Associate Membership will be an asset to your organization for many reasons. NCHCFA provides an array of resources including recognition in NCHCFA’s Membership Directory and Website, networking at annual events, up-to-the-minute information, educational programs, exhibit space at the Annual Expo (while supplies last) and more. Specific details are below:


UPDATE | The association’s newsletter is emailed weekly to all members. UPDATE features highlights of regulatory and legislative policy and promotes various events of interest including upcoming educational opportunities.


NCHCFA Website  | Provides long term care updates and resources, a calendar of events, a facility finder tool, a listing of our Board of Directors and staff, membership information, on-line registration for educational seminars, and much more. Associate Members are listed with a link to their Website and email addresses. This information is readily accessible 24 hours a day.


NCHCFA Annual On-line Membership Directory | NCHCFA’s Membership Directory offers a list of providers, services and product suppliers (Associate Members), and includes contact information for AHCA, North Carolina State agencies, and NCHCFA staff. Member facilities are listed individually, by county, by district and by the name of the facility’s administrator.


NCHCFA Associate Advisory Committee | The Associate Advisory Committee is comprised of NCHCFA trade associate members. This committee works closely with the NCHCFA Education and Programs Committee to determine social events and networking opportunities at both the Annual Convention & Summer Symposium. Committee assignments are for a two year term. Appointments are made by the Chair of NCHCFA’s Board of Directors.


NCHCFA Connect – A Message from your President and CEO | A video message is published periodically to keep you informed of the latest news around the Association directly from Adam Sholar, NCHCFA President & CEO.


Lunch and Learn Webinar Series | Each month, NCHCFA offers a one-hour Webinar on a timely and relevant topic to its members for no additional charge. Continuing education hours are not offered for these Webinars.


The Annual Convention & Expo | Our annual convention and tradeshow provide an opportunity for long term care professionals to share best practices and learn state-of-the-art advances through educational seminars and networking while earning continuing education hours. Our Expo has grown to be the largest and best organized in the South and continually sells out each year! Only current NCHCFA Associate Members can register to attend this event.


Annual Summer Symposium | This conference is held each summer and provides educational classes over a 3-day period with ample opportunity for networking with colleagues. A special “networking package” is available for Associate Members at a reduced fee. Only current NCHCFA Associate Members can register to attend this event.


Freestanding Educational Offerings | Educational seminars are held throughout the year across the state and are designed to bring providers the latest information on operations, regulatory and legal issues, reimbursement, and care/service management. Associate Members can attend at a reduced registration fee.


Annual Autumn Classic | NCHCFA’s annual golf tournament and day at the spa, sponsored by our political action committee (NCHCFA/PAC), is held in September in Southern Pines. This is a fun way for our members to support the important activities of our PAC’s advocacy efforts and network with colleagues.
