The Long-Term Living team is packing up its reporter’s notebooks and walking shoes in preparation for the busy fall conference season. First stop: Las Vegas, next Sunday through Wednesday (September 18-21), for the AHCA/NCAL (American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living) 62ndAnnual Convention & Expo, to be held at Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas.
I’ll report, blog and tweet on conference news and other happenings while contributing blogger Mitchell S. Elliott, chief development officer, Vetter Health Services, will weigh in with his observations. If you plan on attending the conference, please stop by the Long-Term Living booth (number 1065) to say hello.
Long-Term Living editor Kevin Kolus heads to the 21st Annual NIC (National Investment Center) Conference September 21-23 at the Marriott Wardman Park, Washington, D.C. He’ll track all the latest senior housing development and financing news amidst the flurry of wheeling and dealing that brings developers and financiers to this annual event. Stay tuned for Kevin’s insightful reporting.
Congrats to Kathleen
