A Need for Future Leaders: At a time when the long-term care profession is facing significant increase in consumer demand, the available and qualified workforce is declining. While organizations are working to train current leaders through various programs, there is a need for development of future leaders. The U.S. Bureau of Census reported that by 2025 in Michigan, there will be more than 1,821,000 citizens over the age of 65. However, by 2025, the qualified workforce is not expected to increase to meet this new demand of elderly citizens but decrease; the long-term care profession is in desperate need of future leaders to promote the quality care of this population.

Purpose: The purpose of the Future Leaders Program is to invest in and prepare promising individuals for successful leadership roles and expand their potential as a leader in the health care profession. This four module program will provide a foundation for leadership development, crucial skills and a variety of resources in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Audience: The Future Leaders Program is appropriate for all individuals and organizations interested in leadership growth. This program is designed for both health professionals of any discipline including but not limited to new and senior staff; outstanding and challenging staff; nurses; care and nursing assistants; dietary staff; maintenance and environmental personnel; current supervisors and managers; and any staff that provides direct care, support or administrative duties.

Facilitator: Linda Lawther, MA, CALD, LNHA, President/CEO of the Michigan Center for Assisted Living (MCAL), will serve as the facilitator and participant mentor for this program.

Continuing Education:
NHA: This program has been submitted (but not yet approved) for continuing education for 12 total participant hours from NAB/NCERS. Contact for further information.
