Our member-driven, mission-directed work requires funding above traditional membership dues. Underwriting funding is directed exclusively toward initiatives prescribed by the Argentum Board of Directors.
Special thanks to Willis Towers Watson for underwriting support of the Senior Living IQ Initiative.
Argentum’s Corporate Partnership with Willis Towers Watson is focused on developing research related to human capital benefits benchmarking in senior living and risk management practices across the industry.
Recognizing the collective importance of the quality program to senior living, underwriters:
- Provide financial support needed based upon an outlined plan and expected budget
- Provide other resources, human capital, and research in an effort to advance the initiative
- Are an active and proud participant in the initiative
Committees & Work Groups
Argentum’s Senior Living IQ initiative was established as a means of addressing key focus areas related to quality in the senior living industry, identified by Argentum’s Quality Improvement Committee, with support from the Argentum Board of Directors.
The Quality Improvement Task Force is comprised of a diverse group of subject matter experts from across the senior living industry. This group, supported by Argentum staff, develops industry standards, guidelines, and other resources that are used by Argentum members to continually advance quality in senior living communities across the United States.
