For the 2018 NIC Fall Conference, the highly popular NIC Talks program returns with eight fresh speakers from beyond the seniors housing and care sector. As in previous years, the TED-style talks are designed to be insightful, highly relevant, and thought provoking – all in 12 minutes. This year’s speakers represent a wide range of talents and experience, all engaged in answering the question, “How am I changing the future of aging?”
The Labor Department reported that there were 134,000 jobs created in the U.S. economy in September, well below the consensus expectation of 180,000. However, revisions added 87,000 to the prior two months as August was revised to 270,000 from 201,000 and July to 165,000 from 147,000. The September figure may have been negatively affected by Hurricane Florence. Payrolls have averaged 190,000 per month for the last three months, up from 182,000 last year.
This year at the 2018 NIC Fall Conference, we will be introducing Peer-to-Peer Salons as one of our newly enhanced educational program opportunities. The Peer-to-Peer Salons provide a forum for an exchange of ideas across various perspectives from fellow industry professionals. Salon participants will engage in discussions to gain new insights and better understanding from their peers on issues that the industry faces today or possibly in the future.
