OPENING KEYNOTE: Connections, Collaboration and Creativity for the Common Good
Let’s kick off this inaugural Connect Conference in a decidedly unconventional way! Stevie Ray will help us build connections in new ways through his fun and highly interactive presentation. You’ll pick up new techniques and tools that will set the stage for two days of meeting new colleagues, learning about other service options and forging new relationships that can change the way we serve older adults across the continuum. It’s the start of something big … so get ready to have some fun, engage your creative side and stretch your laughter muscles!
General Session: Collaboration in Action: Success Stories from the Field
Now that you’ve been primed for connection and collaboration in the opening keynote, fuel that fire and get inspired by the following success stories. Take home fresh ideas and innovative strategies to build successful collaborations of your own and leverage resources that better serve your community.
• The Juniper Project: Through a collaboration with various partners and funders, the Area Agencies on Aging have connected over 2,000 consumers with education resources including Matter of Balance, diabetes prevention and other training.
• Act on Alzheimer’s: A project that connects key leaders and community members with training and action plans to create dementia friendly communities around the state.
• Silos to Circles: An initiative to identify community assets that enable people to thrive in their rural communities as they age and connect seniors and their families to these resources.
