Become a More Effective Executive Director

"I would encourage executive directors from across the country to come to EDLI because I promise they will go back with new skills and more importantly new networking opportunities in order to enhance their operation. And the energy they go back with is a benefit to their employees and their residents."
—Tana Gall, President, Merrill Gardens

What Past EDLI Attendees Have Said...

"No matter the format and your years of experience as an Executive Director/General Manager, you always learn something new. Presenters are very knowledgeable and you can benefit from their experience, regardless if you are running an IL, AL, MC or a combination of all levels. I highly recommend it to everyone."

"The opportunity for connection and relationship-building at EDLI was just as valuable as the information received. And the information received was VERY valuable!"

"It is worth every minute, and you will go back to your community a new manager with a different lens to look at the way we do our job."

Who Should Attend?

Executive directors of senior living communities (independent living, assisted living, memory care) seeking to enrich their contribution to the success of their community and their company and develop their professional skills for advancement in their company.
