No one ever thinks of anything good coming from a Tsunami. A Tsunami is an unmitigated disaster of unparalleled proportions, that causes mass destruction in its wake. The phrase, “Silver Tsunami,” even as it’s used within the aging field, furthers an old and outdated view of aging; it also undercuts society’s ability to see the opportunities that arise from the incredible achievement of lengthening the average American lifespan by over 30 years just in the past century.
Attendees at the upcoming 2019 NIC Fall Conference will benefit from some of the best networking opportunities of the year, punctuated and enhanced by a full program of informative and insightful presentations. As with all NIC events, attendees are offered a wide range of subject matter and formats, carefully designed to be relevant, useful, interesting, and thought-provoking. Attendees interested in benefitting from the innovations, investments, and lessons learned from businesses operating in real-world conditions will fill the room on Wednesday at 4PM for a unique session titled “Innovations That Work.”
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.
