Agenda/Provider Survey/RSVP

The RESOLVE Forum will provide opportunities to discuss many important topics, including provider questions submitted in advance to BAL and BALTCS. To that end, LeadingAge Wisconsin, Wisconsin Center for Assisted Living, Wisconsin Assisted Living Association and Disability Service Provider Network ask that you please respond to a very brief survey intended to help BAL and BALTCS personnel prepare for the discussions. There is no charge to participate in these forum, but you must register and submit your questions on regulatory processes, interpretations, focus, funding issues, initiatives or other issues via the survey link at (Note: Questions submitted via this survey will be forwarded to BAL and BALTCS anonymously; the names of providers submitting the questions will not be shared with BAL and BATLCS).  

Please remember, you should use this same survey link to RSVP for you and staff to participate in the RESOLVE forum. Once we have received your registration, BAL will be in touch with the contact person(s) you list on your registration form a few days prior to the forum to provide you with the instructions and information you will need to access the forum. As long as you are registered by February 27, 2018, you will have ample time to ensure you are ready for the first forum on March 6, 2018.
