Event description
Our conference will provide timely, innovative, and informative presentations to leave you inspired to improve the lives of older adults.

About this Event

For the first time in 65 years, GGS will not hold an in person annual conference. We are sad that we cannot celebrate with all of you in person but the safety of our attendees, exhibitors, presenters, and the older adults they serve are our priority. GGS has had to adapt throughout our history and 2020 is no different. We are pleased to continue our tradition of providing quality education to the aging network by continuing our conference in a virtual platform.

The theme for the 65th Annual GGS Conference is Elect to Age Your Way: From Vision to Action. Every Tuesday and Thursday from August 4th – October 1st, we will provide timely, innovative, and informative presentations to leave you inspired to improve the lives of older adults. Please visit our conference website to access a schedule and descriptions of our presentations. https://georgiagerontologysociety.org/2020-conference/

GGS would not have made it 65 years without the support of our members. As a thank you for your continued support, we are offering our virtual conference for free to members. Your dedication to improving the lives of older Georgians and those that care for them has never been so evident.

If you are not a member, we highly encourage you to consider joining. You can learn more at https://georgiagerontologysociety.org/membership/.

Virtual Conference Registration Fees:

• GGS Member: Free

• Non-Member: $75

• Student/Retiree/Virtual Conference Presenter: $30

We are dedicated to making this virtual event affordable as we understand that many organizations have taken a financial hit and may not have funds for education right now. We are offering a limited number of scholarship registrations for those who are unable to afford to register but would benefit from attending. We ask that you reserve these registrations for those in need and purchase a registration if you are able.

One-half of all registration funds collected for our scholarship fund to enhance our ability to support our older adult and student scholarship winners in future years. You will also have an opportunity to make a separate donation to this fund if you so choose. We appreciate your support in place of our annual silent auction.

Your registration includes live access to 18 presentations. We understand that you may not be able to attend each session live so you will also have access to the recording of each presentation for future viewing at your convenience. We will also be hosting a virtual awards ceremony and a virtual annual meeting that will be free to all. You will receive separate instructions to register for each live webinar after your conference registration is confirmed.

CEUs:

This activity/program is pending approval from the National Association of Social Workers- Georgia Chapter for 3 Related Hours (Opening and Closing Keynote Sessions). There will be a $10 processing fee for all attendees requesting CEUs. CEUs will only be provided for the live broadcast and not the recordings. If the CEUs are not approved, this fee will be refunded.

Sponsors:

We would like to thank AARP Georgia for their Gold Level Sponsorship. We would also like to thank the Georgia State University Gerontology Institute and the Culture Change Network of Georgia for sponsoring our opening and closing keynote speakers.
