The reasons for calling this a ‘Congress’ are threefold:
First, NaCCRA wishes to aggregate the major areas of concern of CCRC residents, from the broadest possible sources, into a prioritized list that forms a program of strategic and tactical goals that will become NaCCRA’s future objectives and actions.
Second, NaCCRA needs to identify from its membership those persons with the skills and knowledge who can help develop programs that educate CCRC residents to become effective spokespersons for fellow members in their communities and elsewhere.
Third, our leaders must prepare for their succession by creating opportunities for leadership development of residents no matter where they are located. NaCCRA is an organization for residents by residents. Since we are all seniors, our attention to succession planning is a critical to success.
