Senior Living Executive Roundtables

Executive Roundtables

Argentum Executive Roundtables are revolutionizing the way executives in senior living interact by bringing the right people together to solve real-world business challenges facing senior living.

These exclusive, by-invitation-only peer groups are comprised of seasoned senior living professionals from a variety of disciplines and functional areas, who meet in person and through conference calls to discuss their most pressing business challenges.

Disciplines and Functional Areas

  • CFO/Senior Finance
  • Clinical Quality
  • COO/SVP of Operations 
  • Dining Services
  • Government Relations
  • Human Resources 
  • Information Technology
  • Regional Executives
  • Sales and Marketing
  • Procurement/ Asset Management 


Roundtable Membership Eligibility

Membership in each executive roundtable is exclusive to the senior-most executive serving in that specific functional area or corporate responsibility. Each roundtable will consist of 10-50 members.

Individual roundtable membership is conditional of active Gold Argentum corporate membership. Roundtable membership is for twelve months and renewable. Failure to attend or participant in two consecutive meetings (face-to-face or teleconference) may result in suspended roundtable membership.


Roundtable Membership Benefits

  • Help you find solutions. Through such high-level peer interaction you will have the unique opportunity to ask questions of your industry colleagues and find solutions to your pressing concerns.
  • Open your eyes to new practices. The Senior Living industry is always changing, and through the Executive Roundtable Program you will stay current with trends in your discipline and have your eyes opened to new practices.
  • Seed your mind with fresh thinking. Through rich discussion and open dialogue you will hear how others are doing business, giving you a valued perspective on innovation, change and productivity.
  • Advance your professional development. More than an academic program, the Executive Roundtable Program will help you develop professionally as you interact with seasoned executives like yourself who carry practical know how and a continued interest in wanting to improve their performance.

Meeting Structure and Format

  • Face-to-face meetings:
    • A stand-alone meeting determined by the individual roundtable, usually hosted in the fall. The meeting agenda includes roundtable discussion, in which a variety of topics are brought to the table for group discussion. On occasion, or as warranted by the subject matter, outside experts will be invited by the Roundtable chair to present to the group.
    • A meeting held in conjunction with the Argentum Annual Senior Living Executive Conference.
  • Teleconference: The agenda for these meetings consists of a single topic discussion and individual member updates of past topics.


There are no formal minutes taken at any executive roundtable meeting. However, meeting notes will be taken to record who attended and provide a summary (without any member attribution) of each agenda item. The meeting notes are for internal purposes only, and serve the educational interests of the roundtable members and Argentum. The meeting notes will not be posted to the Argentum web site for public viewing, however, the meeting agendas will be available upon request.  

Member Responsibilities

Members will be asked over the course of the year to give a brief presentation on a topic of their choice which is of general relevance to the group. Participants are encouraged to bring pressing questions or nagging problems to the table for group comment and possible resolution. Additionally, each participant is expected to:

  • Be open to sharing experiences
  • Give time to explore solutions for others
  • Provide thoughtful comment to enrich group discussion

Chair Responsibilities

Each roundtable will have a chair appointed by Argentum. The responsibilities of the chair include:

  • Convening and overseeing each meeting
  • Leading and helping facilitate discussions
  • Assisting in establishing agendas and identifying topics for presentations

Staff Liaison Responsibilities

Each roundtable will have an Argentum staff member assigned to the group. The responsibilities of the staff liaison include:
