My hope for NaCCRA is that it become a cause - the cause of resident empowerment and resident peace of mind - beyond the trappings of organization. We now face many national challenges. Among them are (1) diversity of state regulation in the absence of nationwide principles; (2) denial to residents of an effective voice in the governance of the CCRCs that house them and that they fund; and (3) manipulation of accounting, IRS pronouncements, and other national rules to the detriment of residents. We have much work to be done, and we need you in the pursuit of this important undertaking.
