More than 1,700 attendees gathered at the 2022 NIC Spring Conference in Dallas last month, surpassing turnout expectations as participants expressed a bullish outlook for the senior housing and skilled nursing sectors after a few challenging years.

A premiere industry event, the 2022 NIC Spring Conference engaged attendees in three days of results-oriented networking, information sharing, and educational sessions. The conference theme — “A New Day”— highlighted the shift from the challenges of the pandemic to the upcoming opportunities for senior housing and skilled nursing.



In opening remarks, NIC President and CEO Brian Jurutka reflected on the pandemic’s two-year impact on the industry. He noted the heroism of frontline workers and the resilience of owners and operators as everyone joined together to protect the most vulnerable Americans. “It’s too early to say the pandemic is behind us,” said Jurutka. “But we are finding ways to live with COVID, and it’s a new day.” He added that recent data show an industry rebound is underway.

The 2022 NIC Spring Conference welcomed the return of face-to-face receptions where industry stakeholders could socialize and strategize, and of the popular BraindatesTM that facilitated topic-focused small group conversations.

Timely educational session topics included rebuilding occupancy, boosting NOI, and how to recruit and retain workers, among other crucial issues. Plus, a new educational session format allowed for group discussions among attendees after hearing from expert panelists to tease out the important details of the timely topics.

Conference attendees may access high-quality video recordings and the corresponding graphic illustration boards of each session. In addition to the video recordings and illustrations, presentations are still available in the mobile app for download.
