What does it mean to be Stronger by the Member? The 2015 Spring Conference & Trade Show will certainly show strength in numbers:
But we’ll show our strength in other ways as well:
We Will Get to the Heart of the Matter
Whether we are examining all the facets of The True Cost of Care or looking at the real-life face of dementia depicted in Glen Campbell…I’ll Be Me, we will leave Monday’s intensive sessions with a greater understanding of the complexities of long-term care. We hope the residents, family members, and care partners that are joining us for the movie screening are left with joy in their hearts and an awareness that life doesn’t end with a dementia diagnosis.
We Will Channel our Inner Ironman
Where can you draw strength from when you want to quit? Six-time Ironman Triathlon champion Mark Allen will share his strategies for dealing with unexpected challenges, for making a comeback when success seems impossible, and for becoming a true champion in our personal and professional lives at Monday’s keynote session.
We Will Keep an Eye on the Future
Many of the concurrent sessions will examine changes to come in the senior living field and what we can do to prepare. Attendees will get a first-hand view at advances in dementia research, sleep science, and palliative care. And compliance with a slew of new laws will be a hot topic in policy, legal, and risk management sessions, as well as during Tuesday’s general session with CCLD leadership.
We Will Welcome Student Leaders
We are excited to have 14 recipients of CALA’s student scholarship joining us at the Conference & Trade Show. These student leaders, representing universities in both northern and southern California, will take advantage of the many educational and networking opportunities offered and learn more about Assisted Living as an exciting career option.
We Will Ask the Hard Questions
At Wednesday’s keynote session, Jonathan Fanning will help us ask—and answer—the hard questions, like “What do you do to fill your life with energy, to fill your life with passion—to flood your life with conviction, with purpose?” And he will teach us how to become leaders with character, passion, and purpose.
We Will Build Relationships
Whether we are networking with colleagues and exhibitors at the Wine Tasting and Trade Show Lunch, building connections during the educational sessions, or saying “Cheers to 20 Years” at the CALA anniversary party on Tuesday night, we will seize the opportunity to grow and strengthen our community of dedicated, caring Assisted Living professionals, and carry this Stronger by the Member spirit back to our communities and our residents.
