Seeking Education Session Presenters for
2019 KSLA Conference & Exhibition
It's hard to believe that we're already beginning to make plans for the 2019 KSLA Conference & Exhibition. The date has been set: May 15-16, 2019 at The Brown Hotel in Louisville, so mark your calendars!

KSLA is seeking education session presenters for our conference and we want to know who your rock stars are. Who are your top performers? Who has developed sustainable best practices? Who are your strongest leaders?

  • Maybe you have an HR professional who has a great success rate at recruiting and retaining quality staff. What methods are they using?

  • Or, a sales and marketing professional whose efforts have led to increased occupancy rates. What's the secret?

  • How about a person who has a great track record in giving quality care to residents with dementia? Are there new techniques? Could they share advanced level knowledge for employees who care for those with dementia?

  • Who are those leaders in your organization who inspire people to perform at unimaginable levels? How do they do it?

  • Who are your team builders? What strategies do they employ?

  • Do you have someone who is especially gifted at "coaching" employees? How do they handle the really tough conversations?

If you would like to nominate someone from your community/company (or yourself) to lead an education session at our conference on May 15-16, 2019, please Click Here to submit your nomination no later than October 31, 2018.
