Forty Years Post EMU: Reflections on an Unexpected Career
Bernard Bowman, MA
Vice President of Strategic Planning and Development,
The Asbury Group
All good leadership and management training programs cover the basics; things like organizational behavior, finance, marketing, legal and ethical issues, change theory, etc. The presentation will not revisit this knowledge base. Instead it will offer one practitionerâ€™s reflections on elements of learning, life, and experience that cast core values for a leadership journey in the biomedical arena. Participants will be encouraged to begin assembling their own eclectic, post academic, faculties.
After graduating with a BA in History from EMU, Mr. Bowman then completed an AA degree in Long-Term Care Administration at Des Moines Area Community College to meet requirements for licensure in Iowa as a Long-Term Care Administrator. Subsequently, he received a Masterâ€™s Degree in Hospital and Health Care Administration from the University of Minnesota. He held the position of Administrator at Pleasantview Home in Kalona, Iowa; then President/CEO of the Meth-Wick Retirement Community in Cedar Rapids, and finally as President/CEO of Asbury, Inc., a retirement community organization based in Maryville, Tenn. While no longer having any operational accountability, he continues part-time as VP of Strategic Development for the organization. While sitting in a pew at Weaverâ€™s Mennonite Church listening to Daniel Suter preach, he would never have imagined that one day heâ€™d be making a presentation named to honor Dr. Suterâ€™s service to EMU!
