Age Positive Conference scheduled for May 11-13, 2021

The 5th annual Age Positive: Ideas for an Age-Friendly Future conference will be held May 11-13, 2021. The conference provides a forum for participants to learn about innovative program ideas for working with older adults. As it was in 2020, the conference will be held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The Age Positive conference is best suited for professionals and volunteers working in senior centers, community centers, libraries, park districts and other venues that offer programming for older adults.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Refresh – Restart – Renew” and workshops will focus on developing management and leadership skills, evidence-based programs and innovative programming ideas.

The cost is $20 per person ($30 after May 1). Learn more and register.
