The third annual National Emerging Leadership Summit for Healthcare Administrators in Aging Services (NELS) will take place Tuesday through Thursday at George Washington University in Washington. A highlight will be a hearing Wednesday before the Senate Special Committee on Aging, which will feature leaders of major nursing home associations and other key stakeholders stating their cases for building the leadership workforce.

The summit targets administrators who have been in the field for fewer than 10 years and/or are younger than 40 years old. Generation X and Y leaders will be able to learn from and help educate more veteran practitioners in the field. Strategies for attracting and retaining peers will be a major focus of the summit, as well as discussions of best practices and learning about the legislative process.

More information on the summit can be found at its website.
