The planning for the next chapter of HCAOA is underway. The Board has formed a selection committee made up of various board members who will finalize selection criterion for identifying suitable candidates for consideration. Currently, the selection committee is exploring various options to conduct a national search and will follow an outlined process to screen and select a new CEO.
“While we acknowledge that no one can truly replace Vicki Hoak, we are using this [time] to identify criterion which we can use to help ensure the identification of a CEO that will help lead the association into the next chapter of our future,” said Board President Jeff Wiberg.
“The board will be thoughtful about process and timing to ensure our membership and other stakeholders are well served by this process,” Wiberg assured.
The committee plans for the search to conclude prior to Hoak’s departure to allow for some transition. Hoak will remain at the helm of the organization through her final day and the closing day of the 2023 National Home Care Conference—October 24, 2023.
“I look forward to a smooth and thoughtful transition,” said HCAOA CEO Vicki Hoak. “Over the next few months, we will concentrate on continuing our strong state and federal advocacy efforts and on making this year’s National Home Care Conference in Chicago the biggest and best yet. No other home care conference has the breadth of excellent and relevant education, superb information that focuses on technology and business opportunities and productive networking opportunities with both providers and HCAOA’s associate members. I hope to see you there so I can personally thank you for your commitment to our industry, veterans, aging seniors, and people with disabilities. It has been an honor to represent you in this role and I will continue to serve you well through the National Home Care Conference.”
