Team members of our diverse, dedicated aging services workforce are being spotlighted across the country, as well as the many ways we support the professional development and career pathways of our member communities through training and education, leadership development, and an array of tools and resources.
LeadingAge president and CEO Katie Smith Sloan sent a heartfelt message to members about the importance of workforce development, as did co-director of the LTSS Center @UMass Boston Robyn Stone in her latest leadership blog.
Our communications and marketing team released a toolkit of turnkey member resources last month, allowing members to prepare for a coordinated campaign throughout the month – resulting in a healthy sprinkling of member spotlights on social media feeds and valuable workforce resources getting into the hands of members. Success!
