Join the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities for the first installment in their monthly webinar series on Wednesday, April 26, at 12:30 pm Eastern titled “Business Acumen 101: Modernizing Your Community-Based Business in a Changing Environment.”

The mission of community-based organizations (CBO) is rooted in supporting people with disabilities and/or older adults to have vibrant and meaningful lives in their community. This mission is achieved through a culture and philosophy that values person-centered practices, which in turn has yielded a highly customized and community specific provider network. With the movement toward integrated health care, join us to learn more about national efforts to help CBOs to sharpen their business skills in order to translate their mission and expertise into value-added partnerships with a variety of payers including managed care organizations.

Webinar takeaways:

  • Understand what is meant by the term “Business Acumen”
  • Introduction to the Disability Network Business Acumen Grant
  • Understand what this work means to you as a CBO

Stay tuned for upcoming webinars on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 12:30 p.m. Eastern.
