The Erickson School of Aging Studies at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) teams once again with the National Investment Center for the Seniors Housing & Care Industry (NIC) to offer a set of Executive Development courses. The series continues at UMBC on March 22-25 with a four-day seminar, “Organizational Excellence and Continuous Quality Improvement in Seniors Housing & Care.”

The seminar is the second of seven, four-day Executive Education seminars which the Erickson School at UMBC will host through Nov. 4, 2006. A complete schedule and overview of the full 2006 series is available at the bottom of this advisory.

“Organizational Excellence and Continuous Quality Improvement in Seniors Housing & Care” will be led by Anthony Ingelido, former Vice President of Organizational Excellence at Asbury Services and current Director of Quality Assurance at Intellidyne. Guest speakers will include a variety of other experts from the seniors housing and care industry.

NIC, a presenting partner with the Erickson School of Aging Studies at UMBC, brings to this seminar and the rest of the 2006 Executive Education series a legacy of expertise in the field of senior living executive development. The series will be held at the Erickson School, known for training emerging industry leaders in the burgeoning seniors housing and care business.

“NIC is proud to have created with UMBC the premier, advanced-level program for executives in the industry,” says Tony Mullen, Acting Director of Executive Education at the Erickson School and the NIC Research Director. “The courses are truly advanced-level material with many examples of best practices in the field taught by recognized industry leaders. The sharing among the different companies that attend is exceptional and a unique benefit in and of itself. There is nothing else like the program in the country today.”
