Notes/Description

Leadership is something I have been thinking about a lot recently. What makes a leader? What skill set helps people become successful leaders? What can be done to inspire employees?

As many of you know, I was recently given the opportunity to become the HCAM President/CEO. I am humbled and honored to lead this association. It seems fitting that the Spring Leadership Conference will be my first opportunity to speak to all of you as your CEO. During the last ten-plus years as the Vice President of Government Services, I have come to appreciate what a hard job everyone in this profession has. I have also come to appreciate how rewarding it is to be a part of this profession. Leadership is so important in your roles in overcoming challenges.

I strongly encourage you to attend this important conference as there will be some exceptional speakers that will inspire and educate. I am especially interested in hearing from our partners with the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living as well as experts in Michigan specific issues.

If you have any questions or there is an issue you would like me to explore, please reach out. I look forward to working together in the coming year and hope to see you in Battle Creek.
Melissa K. Samuel
HCAM President/CEO
