The NELS Summit is targeted toward health care administrators in health and aging services who have typically been in
the field for under ten years and are identified as emerging leaders. The Summit aims to increase, improve, and support
the profession to attract talent and future leaders by giving a voice to the next generation of leaders.  Individuals that have attended the Summit hold positions in skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, continuing care retirement
communities, life plan communities, rehabilitation hospitals, home- and community-based services,
​and affiliated organizations across the country.

Summit participants will:
  • Identify, develop, and refine solutions for the next generation of leaders building on themes from the previous year's emerging leaders;
  • Meet with representatives of key professional organizations and gain an inside perspective on the legislative process; and
  • Engage in discussions with other leaders in the field of health and aging services administration to advance an agenda of action.
