The Advancing Excellence Long-Term Care Collaborative is a membership based not-for-profit national organization. Our current project is the Advancing Excellence in America’s Nursing Homes Campaign. The Board of Directors meets monthly by phone and 3 to 4 times a year in person. There are currently two standing committees, four workgroups, and task forces for each of the nine goals. Current funding for AE comes from The Commonwealth Fund, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, and membership dues.
