Title: MCAFC Annual Meeting
Wednesday, June 17, 2015

The MCAFC held our annual elections at the Framingham Elks, Framingham, MA.  The event was attended by over 100 AFC Provider agency staff from across the Commonwealth.  Guest speakers included Ken Smith, Director of the OTLSS and Alison Ananis, AFC Program Manager.  Both speakers shared their overwhelming impression of the MCAFC advocacy efforts which included caregivers and members across the state.  Ken spoke about all of us are trying to do our diligence to prevent duplication/overlapping services.  If there is question, reach out to Allison Ananis.    Ken shared his commitment to the AFC program and said his vision was "no more cuts."   Allison shared program site visits are different than Provider Compliance Reviews.  Allison also says she's available for any AGD issues.

MCAFC elections then took place followed by a Mexican luncheon buffet provided by Moe's.
