What If....

What if we were more passionate?
What if we embraced new Ideas without any reservations?
What if we freely considered different perspectives?
What if we empowered our teams to take more strategic risks?
What If we could achieve more with new partners?
What If we had confidence to step outside the box, out of our lane and beyond our comfort zone?
What If we dreamed without limits?
What if we focused on our missions instead of our tasks?
What If we helped people find passion and purpose?
What If we made life better for older people, our staffs, our communities and our STATE?

What If? Why Not? Join us May 6-9, 2019 at the Marriott Resort and Spa at Grande Dunes in Myrtle Beach, SC.

New This Year! Leadership Academy Alumni Shared Learning

Attention LeadingAge NC Leadership Academy Alumni and Coaches – Past and Present:

You are invited to a unique shared learning session exclusively for Alumni and Coaches of the LeadingAge NC Leadership Academy. Join Academy peers for a fresh look at leadership, teamwork, handling pressure, and making work fun by engaging your mind and body in this memorable session.

Participants will work together in a high-energy session, learning, laughing, and competing in teams to solve puzzles and complete activities with limited resources – sound familiar? In a few hours of “play”, you’ll learn more about yourselves and others than from a year of conversation. Be prepared to have fun and create something that will make a difference to others.

This awesome session will be led by opening keynote speaker, Jonathan Fanning, on Wednesday, May 8 from 2:00pm-4:00pm. When completing your registration be sure to mark your plans to attend. The event is exclusively for all LeadingAge NC Leadership Academy Alumni and Coaches, past and present.

Back for a Second Year! Town Hall Conversation

The LeadingAge North Carolina Town Hall Conversation is your opportunity to provide input to LeadingAge about ways public policy is affecting you, the older adults you serve – and how policy could be changed for the better. LeadingAge has established a new public-policy setting process, the most important part of which is a Town Hall Conversation in each state. LeadingAge state and national staff, and a member of the LeadingAge national Board of Directors, will participate to hear directly from you. Results of the Conversation will be shared with LeadingAge’s Policy Committee, Board of Directors and staff, and will be used to set public policy priorities to better represent your interests and the interests of older adults in Washington, DC. The feedback from each Town Hall will be aggregated so we can identify the most pressing issues across states, themes and emerging issues.
