AHMA-NCH Reverse Trade Show @ Oakland Marriott
May 3 @ 1:00 pm – 4:30 pm

AHMA-NCH: What is a Reverse Tradeshow?

Thursday, 5/3/18

Rather than the traditional tradeshow floor being the primary way of the AHMA suppliers meeting the AHMA management companies, the focus is on pre-set meeting appointments.

Namely, meeting appointments between buyers and suppliers are set before the show. A schedule is set, and both parties are expected to honor their commitment to meet.

One of the great things about this type of show is that by giving focused time with a supplier, the buyer is made more aware of the company’s offerings. As many studies have revealed, consumers often have a totally different perception of what a company’s products are than do their sales people!

Management Companies:

Plan to come to learn more about suppliers that can save your company time and money and provide quality, local services.

Associates/Vendors:

Receive targeted one-on-one time with management companies who send their buyers to this show. Participating management companies are/have been Barcelon Associates, Bridge Housing, Cambridge Management, Christian Church Homes, Community Housing Partnership, EAH, EBALDC, Eden Housing Management, HumanGood, Interstate Realty Management, Mercy Housing, MidPen Property Management Corp., The John Stewart Company, The Salvation Army, WINNResidential!

AHMA will be ‘kicking off’ the Annual Conference at the reception immediately after the tradeshow!

*Please note, in order to provide a wide variety of ‘types’ of vendors (painters, legal, restoration) for our management companies, AHMA reserves the right to limit types of companies to first come first served per registration date.

WEBINAR: Adult Bullying @ WEBINAR
May 16 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm

Bullying Among Seniors: Out of the Playground and into Senior Living Communities

When we hear the word bully, we immediately think of children and adolescents, but it is very real problem in the older adult population. It is estimated that 10-20% of older-adults experience some type of senior-to-senior aggression, usually verbal abuse. The actual numbers of older adults targeted are tough to tease out, because these acts often go unreported. This webinar is designed to increase and/or enhance your knowledge regarding the phenomenon of older-adult bullying, and outline ways to create a safe environment for addressing the targeted individuals as well as the perpetrators.

Webinar Participants Will:

-Identify the five common types of adult bullies.
-Describe the characteristics of bullying behaviors.
-Understand the psycho-social impacts of bullying behaviors.
-Identify coping skill that targets can use in bullying situations.
