Phoenix, AZ – Today, the American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) hosted its first annual Not-For-Profit (NFP) Day at its 64th Annual Convention & Expo in Phoenix, Ariz.

“Not-for-profit centers are a critical part of our diverse association,” said Mark Parkinson, President and CEO of AHCA/NCAL. “We’re excited to bring these providers together to discuss their unique issues as we continue moving the long term and post-acute care sector forward.”

Approximately 100 providers attended NFP Day, and chose to attend multiple educational sessions on various topics, ranging from quality updates to strategic planning sessions and grant funding discussions.

The event’s keynote speaker, Christopher Ridenhour, challenged NFP Day attendees to refresh their perspective on what leadership means by promoting healthy self-assessment, energetic dialogue, and numerous researched managed techniques. Ridenhour currently serves as Director of Staff Engagement Training at Liberty Lutheran Services in Philadelphia.

NFP long term and post-acute care providers include skilled nursing centers and assisted living communities, state veterans homes, continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), senior housing and intellectual and developmental disabilities (ID/DD) services providers.

 The 64th Annual AHCA/NCAL Convention will run through Wednesday, October 9.
