The Nominations Committee of the National Adult Day Services Association (NADSA) is charged with identifying the best candidates to lead the association into the future, balancing skills, experience, geography, gender, ethnicity and other factors that would result in a strong and diverse board. The membership will be responsible for approving the slate of Directors recommended by the committee, and the results will be announced at the Annual Business Meeting in Phoenix, AZ, on October 17, 2015.
All Directors of the NADSA Board must be NADSA members, and a majority must be providers of adult day services. Elected Directors take office at the close of the Annual Meeting at which their election is announced. Board Directors serve for a term of three (3) years. Directors may serve on the Board for no more than six (6) consecutive years, provided that a Director serving as an Officer in any of the Chair-Elect, Chair or Past Chair offices may continue to serve on the Board to complete the full cycle of these successive offices.
NADSA Board members are expected to participate in quarterly teleconferences and attend two in-person meetings each year—one in conjunction with the fall conference (locations vary) and one in conjunction with the spring public policy conference in D.C.
With your help, we can fulfill our charge of assuring that your National Association’s leadership is comprised of those individuals who can help to advance or mission of “advancing the national development, recognition and use of Adult Day Services.”
Your voice is very important in the nomination process. Please consider submitting nominations now. If you have any questions, please contact Ned Morgens at firstname.lastname@example.org or Teresa Johnson at Teresa@nadsa.org.

Posting comments to the Long-Term Supports and Services (LTSS) policy paper on the White House Conference on Aging (WHCoA) has earned ADS the respect of the health insurance industry. LifeHealthPro.com, self-described as “the only complete online destination for life & health insurance advisors,” has commended ADS providers as “The players who may be talking most about a concrete way to save money.”
On June 24th LifeHealthPro.com published an article online entitled “5 jolts from the White House conference prelims.” The fifth “jolt” commends ADS and is entitled: “Many people participating in the preliminary conversations seem to have trouble understanding the concept of limits on resources.” Click here to access the full article and to read the complete comments regarding ADS.
