A Worm’s Eye View of The NIC Senior Conference

People have told me that senior living development is slowing down, and they may be right.  But having recently returned from the NIC conference in Chicago, I can tell you that over two days we had the good fortune to meet people from 39 different companies, a record for us.

All of these people were working on their next project or the next several projects.  Though there was little complaining about tightening of debt markets, all of them were optimistic and excited for the opportunities in front of them.

This makes me excited for the opportunities, and what 2018 should bring.  The time and interest from all these professionals was appreciated.  And it’s a credit to all of the people in The Douglas Company who are working hard to create a reputation, with the goal to be the best senior living builder in the country.  Let’s us hope that my read from the NIC conference is right and the future is bright.
