Serving an Aging Population: Experts Convene for Two Days of Learning and Networking

For professionals whose work centers on serving seniors, the growing aging population offers many new business opportunities. At the CSA Conference taking place in Orlando, FL from August 7th-9th, 2013 financial professionals, home caregivers, nurses, gerontologists and others who work to address the specific needs of older people will have the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and boost their business.

The conference will cover multidisciplinary topics organized into four main tracks: Finance, Research and Lifestyle, Healthcare and Public Policy, and a program that addresses issues of interest to all senior specialists, including a condensed version of the top aging industry reports of 2013, how to position your business for growth using the home care industry as an example, and the effects of the 2010 Affordable Care Act in 2013.

Speakers include Harry R. Moody (Rick), Director of Academic Affairs, AARP, Ryan Wilson, Senior Strategic Policy Advisor, AARP, Clint Niemeyer from the Alabama Securities Commission and Glenn (Mitch) Mitchell from the Claude Pepper Center at Florida State University.

The opening keynote address will be from Dorcas Hardy of D.R. Hardy and Associates, who served under President Ronald Reagan as Assistant Secretary of Human Development Services, and later chaired the Policy Committee of the 2005 White House Conference on Aging.

The CSA Conference will also feature sessions on:

• Regulatory approaches to senior safety
• Financial planning
• Ethical dilemmas in aging
• Common business challenges

“We know that an integrated approach to senior care is the most effective way of assisting people as they grow older” says Harry R. Moody (Rick), AARP’s Director of Academic Affairs.

“The CSA conference is a unique opportunity to meet experts from sectors as diverse as financial planning and home care giving. This will be the place to learn and share insights on how changes in our society as a result of a growing aging population will affect you and your business. The conference will help professionals understand how to remain up-to-date on aging issues and trends, build a stronger client base and work towards business success” he continues.

For existing CSAs, the conference offers the opportunity to gain Continuing Education (CE) credits that count towards the requirements for recertification, with a session tracker being provided to help document attendance.

CSA Conference attendees can expect to expand their resources and networks, while enhancing their service to seniors.
