Together Forward

Supporting older adults live more meaningful lives is not just an end goal — it’s a journey. To continue on that journey, you need a conference that’s created for leaders like you, a forum where you can discuss the tough moments from the last year, hear ideas that’ll transform your organization, and make sure you’re ready for the next wave of innovation in the aging services field. This past year we came together in the way we could, please join us in 2021 as we find opportunities to move us forward.

This year’s virtual conference theme is forward, and it speaks to our hope and optimism as we begin to emerge from the global COVID-19 pandemic toward what’s next. To move forward doesn’t mean to push past what we have been through and try to return to life exactly as it was before. On the contrary, to truly move our organizations forward, we must leverage our experience to become stronger and smarter. We will need to evolve to meet the challenges ahead by bridging where we have been with new skills and knowledge and look forward to a new future. We understand forward means a better tomorrow is not promised — it has to be created.

The 2021 experience in May is 100% virtual, offering the ultimate in flexibility, choice, and value. Join us in moving forward on May 4-6 for the second edition of LeadingAge Iowa’s Virtual Conference. Together we will move our organizations and the field of aging services forward.

We’re excited about the content offered in this virtual conference focusing on the most popular topics and session speakers. You’ll also find exciting content targeted for dietary, environmental services/facilities management, human resources, marketing/sales, life enrichment, and social workers in the coming months. For example, Selling During a Pandemic is scheduled on April 21 and features expert speaker Michael Marlow taking a deep dive into the critical role of selling in the senior living industry.
