2017/2018 Future Leaders Training

Christy Sharp

It's time to consider recommending a candidate to your State Executive to participate in the annual “Future Leaders of Long Term Care in America” program. Candidates will be selected for this professional training and mentorship program, which begins at the September 13 - 15 symposium in Washington, D.C. Each state may nominate one person.

The nominees for the 2017/2018 class should be owners and operators who are up and coming leaders in your state. We especially encourage nominees who reflect not only the diversity of AHCA membership in terms of gender, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic backgrounds, but the various constituency groups that comprise AHCA/NCAL – whether that is a rural or urban area, a non-profit or a proprietary facility, or small, independently-owned facilities or regional, multi-facility corporations.

ALL nominations must be submitted by AHCA State Affiliates. Each State Affiliate may submit one nomination. Before contacting your State Association to recommend a candidate for this year’s class of Future Leaders, please discuss the following requirements and responsibilities with your nominee. Future Leaders will be expected to:

  • Attend a three-day training session, which will be held in Washington, DC on September 13 - 15;
  • Complete any assigned reading – typically 4 or 5 books during the year – and be prepared to discuss on conference calls;
  • Participate in a majority of scheduled conference calls and activities, including a graduation event hosted by AHCA/NCAL leadership at the AHCA/NCAL Annual Convention & Expo, which will be held October 7 – 10, 2018 in San Diego, CA; 
  • Demonstrate an interest in working on LTC issues at the national level, which may include participating on AHCA/NCAL workgroups or committees; and
  • Consider active participation in the AHCA PAC and promoting its importance to other members.

Once you have discussed the responsibilities and requirements with your nominee, please contact your State Association with your recommendation. AHCA State Executives will be asked to submit a nomination for one person by June 12, 2017.

Should you have any questions, please contact Christy Sharp at or 202-898-2839.
