On March 15, GAO hosted our annual Hearts for Home Care Ambassador training for new and current ambassadors at BAYADA’s North Carolina Learning Center. The day began with our Key Action of the Week discussion and followed with a day of learning, client experience, and panel discussions with legislators and campaign managers. Our ambassadors felt the day was energetic and inspiring, and they especially enjoyed the client stories and legislative perspectives. Below, please find quotes from two of the day’s attendees:
Christian Sheets, Client Services Manager in the Coastal Carolina Pediatric and Adult Nursing Office stated:
“The most helpful part of Ambassador training was just the amount of comfortability I felt after attending. Simply discussing the need for advocacy with my peers made me realize that it will be easy to be passionate about our issues in legislative settings. “
Amy Ramey, Director in the Rock Hill Assistive Care Office added:
“My perspective is that the Ambassador Trainings get better each year. I especially enjoyed Ron Ross and the dynamic session he provided. I am thrilled that there seem to be more and more people interested in advocacy and that our group is growing!
If I could change anything it would be to not call it “training.” I think some thought it would be the same as last year and didn’t see a need to attend. However, I learned so much that we didn’t cover last year. Overall, the experience was excellent. I’m looking forward to next year!”
It’s OK if you missed training! If you’d like to find out more about becoming a Hearts for Home Care Ambassador, email Mike Sokoloski.
