The California Assisted Living Association (CALA) announced today that it will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2015 with a year-long event known as “Stronger by the Member.” Celebration of the organization’s anniversary will include in-depth profiles of CALA members and a retrospective of the history of Assisted Living in California.
According to CALA President Sally Michael, “CALA is truly ‘stronger by the member.’ Throughout its history, CALA’s members, volunteer leadership, and staff have much to be proud of as we worked together to positively impact public policy and share the benefits of Assisted Living with the public.”
The association was formed in 1995 by California Assisted Living providers interested in promoting and strengthening the Assisted Living model of care in the state. In the past 20 years, CALA and its members have sustained a successful history of educating a knowledgeable and diverse workforce, advocating for positive Assisted Living legislation, and providing leadership in the delivery of high-quality care to California’s seniors.
Michael says, “CALA is a respected source of information, known for delivering on its promises and approaching issues with a solution-oriented perspective. We look forward to celebrating this history with our members and the residents and families they support.”
