From Reactive to Proactive: Designing a Better Aging Experience Through Collaboration
Friday, June 1, 2012 from 8:00 AM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
Please join us for the 2012 "As America Ages" conference. Building off last year's conversation around the impact of the aging US population, our 2012 conference will empower attendees with actionable strategies that utilize collaboration across public agencies as well as public / private partnerships. With budgets tight (and getting tighter), learn how to leverage the genius in the agencies and community organizations that surround you to better address thorny and challenging issues that threaten the well-being of today's (and tomorrow's) seniors. We are excited to bring together a set of leaders across sectors and disciplines to share their experiences and speak with you about how they (and you!) can get it done.
