Peer-to-Peer Salons: Facilitated Discussion to Engage, Enlighten and Inform

This year at the 2018 NIC Fall Conference, we will be introducing Peer-to-Peer Salons as one of our newly enhanced educational program opportunities.  The Peer-to-Peer Salons provide a forum for an exchange of ideas across various perspectives from fellow industry professionals.  Salon participants will engage in discussions to gain new insights and better understanding from their peers on issues that the industry faces today or possibly in the future.

These timely topics will be professionally facilitated by Lisa Spinali—a thought leader who helps build cross sector solutions for public good—to ensure the discussion will have an impact on participants. This learning forum is unique compared to other educational sessions at NIC conferences.   Salon participants will share and potentially debate their respective viewpoints with colleagues to give shape and color to the discussion topics.

Our list of topics this year are:

  • 9:45 am – 11:00 am -Labor Market: How Can We Better Navigate the Associated Challenges at Our Properties in the Increasingly Tight Labor Market?
  • 11:15 am – 12:30 pm-Penetration Rates: What Opportunities Exist for Us to Increase the Penetration Rates Across Senior Care Properties Going Forward?
  • 2:30 pm – 3:45 pm-Market Underwriting: Given the Current Competitive Market Conditions, How Do We Best Identify or Underwrite Markets for Investment?

If you are attending the 2018 NIC Fall Conference, we hope you will join us on Thursday, October 18th to participate in one of the three Peer-to-Peer Salons.  The salons are designed to engage all participants as we learn from one other. By participating in this session, you will gain insight on how fellow industry professionals are tackling hot button issues which can make a difference in how you navigate your business as you explore various options and potential paths forward.  Hope to see you there!
