Future Leaders Council: Critical to the NIC Mission

By: Bill Kauffman  |  July 17, 2019

One of the most important elements of success for a business or an industry is the continued development of leadership to ensure that the necessary human capital is available to embrace the challenges of the future, prepare for growth, and navigate critical issues. NIC and the seniors housing and care sector are no different. Leadership development is essential, especially for the continued success of delivering on the NIC mission which is to support access and choice for America’s seniors by providing data, analytics, and connections that bring together investors and providers. As the need for housing and care increases with an aging population, so too does the need for innovative thinking and the ability to solve the challenges ahead and embrace the opportunities for the future.
