Special Edition JLCP Available in Hard Copy

In December 2018, IARP and Elliott and Fitzpatrick released a life care planning summit compendium, containing all Summit Proceedings as well as Consensus and Majority Statements published since 2000. This 200+ page document contains best practice statements culminated over two decades in the field of life care planning and is based upon the work of hundreds of life care planners from multiple disciplines.

For subscribers to the Journal of Life Care Planning, this document was provided electronically. Elliott & Fitzpatrick, however, is now making a hard-copy of this special issue available to any IARP member for $35 and to non-IARP members for $45. A hard-copy subscription to the Journal of Life Care Planning is not required for this one-time purchase opportunity.

  • Special Outreach Opportunity for IARP Members for 2020


    The Vocational Rehabilitation Transition Services (VRTS) section of IARP is offering you an opportunity to directly market your services to the Counsel of Parent Attorney Advocates (COPAA) conference attendees. The VRTS Section brought a special directory to the 2019 COPAA conference and will be doing so again in 2020. Last year there were 650 attendees from throughout the US and COPAA reports that each year their conference attendance grows. The VRTS exhibit well received and COPAA members were asking for names of providers in their geographic areas. This year we are giving you the opportunity to provide your information directly to the attendees who will bring the information back to their practice and geographic areas. Advertising your services gives you a unique opportunity to market your services without competition.

    Since you advertised in this Directory in 2019, you have the special opportunity to do so again in 2020 and receive a discount for upgrading your listing to a full page ad with a discount. Once you receive the email offer to place the advertisement, use the special discount code of: UPGRADE2020 to receive $20 off a full page ad.

    If you're interested in marketing your services to more than 650 transition service providers we have two options for you. For only $50.00 you can have a half page advertisement. Or you can upgrade to an exclusive full page ad for $100.00. Make your choice below and proceed to the IARP website.


    If you have questions or need anything further on this topic, please don't hesitate to contact me, I am happy to help.
