LeadingAge Sponsors National Emerging Leadership Summit Program (NELS)

Workforce | July 18, 2019 | by Susan Hildebrandt

LeadingAge is also working with other organizations to help students and emerging leaders in our field! Recently, we partnered with AHCA/NCAL, Argentum, ACHCA, NAB, and other groups to sponsor a three-day program for leaders in older adult services.

  • Organized and led by the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, the NELS program brings new leaders to DC to learn how to advocate for the profession, hear from sponsoring organizations about their leadership programs and current initiatives, go to Capitol Hill, and discuss challenges facing the field of health and aging services.
  • Participants end the program by developing “action plans,” such as reaching out to their local communities about our field, mentoring future leaders, tackling recruitment and retention issues, and improving the view of our profession.
