The Florida Health Care Association recently selected 18 professionals as the Florida Leaders Class of 2018, an exclusive program that develops leaders within the Association and the long term care profession. Delegates were chosen for their demonstrated leadership skills and support of FHCA, as well as their interest in pursuing leadership pathways to improve their personal and professional skills.
“These demonstrated leaders will gain tremendous skills that they can put forth in their day-to-day activities as a means of continuous quality improvement and operational effectiveness,” said Alex Terentev, FHCA Senior Vice President and member of the inaugural Florida Leaders Class of 2009.
Along with intensive discussions on leadership, class members delved into a number of long term care issues, including quality initiatives, effective communications and long term care advocacy. The program timed well with a legislative committee week, giving class members the opportunity to visit with legislators to discuss the priorities the Association will focus on in the upcoming session. Members also listened in on the House Select Committee on Hurricane Preparedness meeting and testimony from the Agency for Health Care Administration, FHCA and other stakeholders involved with emergency procedures for nursing centers.
Class members will stay connected throughout the year with quarterly conference calls and a Florida Leaders Lobby Wednesday during session. A graduation ceremony and alumni reunion is set to occur during FHCA’s Annual Conference next year.
FHCA’s Florida Leaders program is sponsored by Coastal Reconstruction Group.
