LTC Comment: Center
for Long-Term Care Reform 2008 National Long-Term Care Consciousness
Tour update and endorsement after the ***news.***
*** SILVER BULLET OF LTC.
If you've followed our plans for the National Long-Term Care
Consciousness Tour, you know I'll be living on the road in an Airstream
trailer next year to promote LTC awareness.
That'll be our bright, shiny, aluminum media magnet.
I do think it will draw attention.
Here are a few things I learned from a recent article in USA
1963 Airstream "Bambi" is featured in the lobby of the Museum
of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City (http://www.moma.org/exhibitions/exhibitions.php?id=4507).
Strange bedfellows to be sure, but if it works for
them, it should raise some eyebrows and attract some eyeballs to our
"Long-Term Care Wake-Up Tour." ***
*** LTC GRADUATE SEMINAR.
Our first internet-based LTC Graduate Seminar got off to a
flawless start yesterday. So
we're opening enrollments for the next offering of this eight-week
class. Participation is
limited to the first 20 to enroll so contact Damon ASAP at 206-283-7036
or email@example.com to hold
a spot. For all the
details, see http://www.centerltc.com/LTC_Grad_Seminar/index.htm
or check out our 30-minute Webinar about the LTC Grad Seminar at http://www.centerltc.com/WebinarAnnouncingLTCGradSem.wmv.
Tuition is $225 but that includes a year's membership in the
Center or a one year extension if you're already a member.
Successful completion of the LTC Graduate Seminar is a
pre-requisite for participation as a Regional Representative in the 2008
"LTC Tour." The next class will begin as soon as 20 people enroll, so get
a group together and let's get the show on the road, as it were. ***

LTC BULLET: LTC
TOUR UPDATE AND ENDORSEMENT
Comment: Claude Thau is a
dynamo. He has a hand in
everything that matters about long-term care planning and insurance.
And he's seen it all from leading a major LTCi carrier to
mentoring LTCi producers throughout the United States.
He's a mainstay advisor for two nationally syndicated financial
columnists I know and probably many others as well. Like the old E.F. Hutton commercial, when Claude speaks,
people listen. So the
Center for Long-Term Care Reform is very pleased he's talking about our
2008 National Long-Term Care Consciousness Tour.
Here's what he had to say recently in an email blast to his large
and growing private readership:
of you may know Steve Moses. Steve
is my go-to guru as regards Medicaid.
At one time, I was the Chairman of the Board of a non-profit LTC
think tank created and run by Steve.
He is one of 10 people to be cited next month as "Power
People in LTCi" by Senior Market Advisor.
[Claude's too modest to mention he's one of the ten as well.]
2008, Steve will tour the USA to influence local media, politicians and
policy makers regarding LTC issues.
You might be interested in knowing when he will be in your area,
in meeting with him or introducing him to people he should meet,
arranging speaking engagements or interviews for him, etc. So
here is his schedule:
Southeast: FL, GA,
AL, MS, SC, NC, TN (January,
specialists, in particular, might like to be more involved, perhaps as
sponsoring "gadflies." I've
elected to be a Regional Representative.
would be interested in:
Meeting: reporters, media, legislators, regulators, senior
advocates, LTC providers, financial advisors, attorneys, CPAs, insurance
brokers, reverse mortgage providers, policy think tanks, etc.
Speaking engagements: radio or TV, Chambers of Commerce,
legislatures, Rotary or other leadership organizations, estate planning
councils, relevant associations (medical, attorney, CPA, etc.)
you could find someone who might take the initiative of sponsoring his
presentation as continuing education for some professionals.
can reach Steve at (206) 283-7036 or email@example.com.
You can also look at his web-site: http://www.centerltc.org.
can certainly be controversial. Whether
you agree with everything he says or not, he stimulates and engages in
debate on important issues. I've learned a lot from Steve.

financial support of our LTC Tour campaign and for the wonderful work he
does every day in furtherance of the long-term care mission.
