ALFA 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.
"As an ALFA Executive Roundtable Member for the past 7 years, I strongly recommend your involvement in this dynamic interchange of ideas between industry leaders. Each time I leave a roundtable meeting, I leave feeling energized about senior living and our future as healthcare providers. Roundtable members share common challenges to seek solutions and ideas from their peers, but also dialogue about "best practices" that can be applied successfully in each of our organizations to improve resident care & innovative senior services. I'm immensely proud to be part of this distinguished group of professionals.
