The Foundation of the National Association of Long Term Care Administrator Boards (the “Foundation”) is a nonprofit organization established to promote and enhance the profession of long term care administration to and on behalf of the organization’s members.  The Foundation was also created for the purpose of promoting quality care and public protection for the disabled and frail elderly populations. The Foundation carries out its mission through its support of quality improvement initiatives, leadership development and research. Below is a sampling of current and past initiatives of the Foundation:

National Emerging Leadership Summit: The GW NATIONAL EMERGING LEADERSHIP SUMMIT for Healthcare Administrators in Aging Services is a conference held at The George Washington University. The summit provides an opportunity for Generation X and Generation Y leaders in the field of health and aging services administration to engage in discussions of current best practices with other leaders, meet with representatives of key professional organizations, gain an inside perspective on the legislative process, and explore solutions for attracting and retaining other Generation X and Y leaders. The Summit combines current best thinking and a facilitated dialogue to provide a new perspective for both the participating individual and the broader field.
