January 4, 2012, Tucson, Arizona -- The CARF Board of Directors elected Kayda Johnson, chief operating officer of Senior Resource Group in Solana Beach, California, as chair of the board. She was elected to serve as chair for one year beginning January 1, 2012, during the board's November 2011 meeting.

The board provides governance for CARF International, a nonprofit accreditor of health and human services.

"CARF's mission to enhance the lives of persons served will continue as our guiding force as we enter 2012," Johnson said. "We will build on CARF's strong foundation in health and human services laid down by previous boards, CARF management, staff, and surveyors."

She has participated in committees of the National Investment Center (NIC) for senior housing and care industries, and she is active in the American Seniors Housing Association (ASHA).

Johnson is the current secretary of the Arizona ALFA Board of Directors and is a member of the Continuing Care/Residential Communities Committee of Aging Services of California. She is a frequent speaker at conferences and contributing author to industry journals and publications.

Before her present position overseeing operations for Senior Resource Group, Johnson held chief operating officer positions in large retirement housing companies for 10 years. Senior Resource Group develops, owns, and operates high quality senior housing communities that are home to more than 4,000 residents on 17 campuses throughout Arizona, California, Florida, and Oregon.
