Why you MUST attend the NAAP Annual Conference: Part 1 by Conference Trustee Mike McCann
Educational opportunities. No matter how experienced you are at your job or career, everyone can learn. If you are not growing yourself, you are stagnant, stuck and providing outdated, out of touch programs for your residents. Working in a bubble can often be isolating, and without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results. The educational aspect of a conference can expose you to new ways of conducting your business and help you discover how to be more productive.
This year we have added more educational opportunities for you to participate in. These are broken down into four Education Tracks; Leadership, Program, Resident Well-Being and Team Building. This allows you to move through the tracks of learning that can help you turn some weaknesses in your department into strengths. These sessions are facilitated by the best of best within our industry and are waiting to give you as many “take-aways” that you can handle. Sessions range from Men’s Programming to Technology, Hospitality, Leadership and Culture Change. Beyond our speakers, we are also offering pre-conference trainings in Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Care and a special seminar to become CADDCT (Certified Alzheimer’s Disease & Dementia Care Trainer).
