SE4A University was established to meet the growing needs of staff who serve our senior population in the Southeast and a way for the Board of Directors to extend the annual training conference opportunities to those in our network who cannot participate on an annual basis. We have discovered that it is becoming necessary to support staff to improve skills and competencies to assure we remain competitive and reach our goal of growing our business and our impact going forward. You will find that SE4A University not only provides quality but this quality is delivered at a great price and gives your organization an excellent return on investment!
