On October 16-17, ALFA hosted 150 executives who work to advance excellence in senior living at the ALFA 2013 Senior Living Executive Forum. The two-day event in Las Vegas, NV offered attendees deep insight into factors shaping senior living.
“The ALFA Forum is an intensive learning and collaborative environment focused on relevant topics related to the senior living business today and in the future,” said Richard P. Grimes, ALFA president and CEO. “The ALFA Forum encourages each of us to exercise our strategic skill sets to raise the bar for excellence in senior living.”
Health policy expert David Merritt of Leavitt Partners opened the program Wednesday by exploring Medicaid, Accountable Care Organizations, the Affordable Care Act and highlighting their impact on the senior living landscape.
Afternoon discussions between ALFA’s Executive Roundtable Members and ALFA’s President’s Council Members centered on pressing industry topics such as occupancy trends, financial market conditions, data security and federal issues affecting senior living providers.
MIT blackjack legend Jeffrey Ma, who is also the founder and CEO of productivity start-up TenXer, Thursday morning highlighted business lessons learned from blackjack, including confidence, conviction and the ability to manage risk. He stressed the importance of using data to improve effectiveness and dictate decisions.
Following Ma’s presentation, Executive Roundtable members met with their peer groups to solve real-world business challenges facing their discipline within the senior living realm. A summary report of the ALFA Senior Living Executive Forum is being produced and will become available in November.
