Meredith Hodges, Director of Quality and Compliance for Senior Options, has started the year-long LeadingAge DC, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia Leadership Academy.  The program was created to enhance the leadership skills of nonprofit aging services leaders in the DC, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia region. During the coming year, the Fellows will be guided through graduate-level curriculum which examines the traits of successful leaders, develops leadership competencies, and expands knowledge in the field of aging services, while establishing strong bonds with peers from other LeadingAge members.
