Legacy Leaders Serving Seniors
What is Legacy Leaders Serving Seniors Networking?
A monthly gathering of aging services professionals focused on education, collaboration, and resource development in order to better serve Oklahoma's seniors.
Why should I attend this event?
Serving seniors is a team sport and everyone's position on the team is important. The more we know about each other, the better advocates and resources we can be for our clients and beyond.
Who attend the networking meetings?
Individuals whose primary client base, professional focus, and passion is centered around serving older adults and their families.
How does this differ from other groups?
Designed to be high-minded, focused, purposeful, educational, and intentional, this group will leave you feeling energized, inspired, empowered, equipped and connected! Specifically geared toward aging services professionals and those serving seniors, we cover an educational topic each week followed by an interactive small group exercise. Each week you will connect with other like minded individuals who, like you, want to become the best they can be!
Tuesday, July 5th
11:00 am to 12:00 pm

RSVP requested in advance so we can prepare for the small group exercises. **Please note you can now register for multiple event dates** Thanks!
