Nomination & Application Process

Future Leaders Council Nomination & Application Process


Thank you for your interest in the nomination process for membership in NIC’s Future Leaders Council (FLC).

NIC is not seeking new Future Leaders Council members at this time and will reopen the nomination process in early 2022. Terms for current FLC members have been extended through September 2022 in recognition of the impacts to professional schedules caused by the pandemic.

We appreciate your interest in joining the FLC and encourage you to check back for future updates.

FLC Overview

The NIC FLC was created to be an extension of, and resource to, the NIC Board in order to further the mission of NIC: to enable access and choice by providing data, analytics, and connections that bring together investors and providers. The FLC prepares tomorrow’s NIC leaders to face what lies ahead, grow the industry and positively impact America’s seniors population with NIC’s mission at the core of its activities. The FLC offers emerging leaders the opportunity to hone their leadership skills, address critical issues that impact the industry through NIC’s initiatives, and develop a network of trusted associates and resources.

There currently are 25 members of the FLC serving three-year terms. The selection of FLC members has become a highly competitive process, and there regularly are only eight (8) new members named each year. This year, FLC members are working alongside NIC leadership on key initiatives such as the NIC Boot Camp, the NIC Community Connector, and speaking engagements at universities regarding the seniors housing and care industry. FLC members are also serving on the 2021 Fall Conference Program Committee as well as University Outreach and Internship Committee. In addition, the members participate in a leadership development program.
