Last month, A.G. Rhodes joined other aging services organizations at the LeadingAge annual meeting to participate in important events and initiatives concerning long-term services and supports, some of which garnered media attention. LeadingAge is the national association of nonprofit providers of aging services which held its annual meeting in Atlanta this year.
Building Partnerships to Promote Career Leadership OpportunitiesSponsored by A.G. Rhodes and in partnership with the United Negro College Fund, representatives from Long-Term Services and Supports (LTSS) organizations convened with leaders from several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to discuss strategies to promote LTSS career opportunities among HBCU students and equip them with knowledge and skills to become LTSS leaders.

“We are proud to be part of such relevant and needed discussions as we welcome attendees from all over the country to the city that became the cultural catalyst for the Civil Rights Movement and is home to such prominent historically black colleges and universities,” said A.G. Rhodes CEO Deke Cateau.
Cateau also hosted several Leaders of Color networking sessions to share best practices and ideas for developing a diverse pipeline of LTSS leaders.

Rhodes Board of Trustee Emeritus and retired LeadingAge CEO, Larry Minnix, shared best practices in successful senior living governance and top influencers of success for nonprofit boards of directors.
