Leadership Academy

Celebrating 10 Years of Preparing the Next Generation of Leaders in Aging Services

We are proud to celebrate our 10th Anniversary in February at the 2020 Institute & Expo! This brings to total 300 graduates of this unique leadership development program designed specifically to cultivate high potential, transformational leaders in the field of aging services. 

Our accomplished alumni represent a new generation of transformational leaders who are not just responding to the changing times but who are driving positive change for their organizations and the aging services community.
