SHIFT for Success: New Directions for Senior Centers

July 18, 2012

November 1-3, 2012 | Columbus, IN

Is your senior center stuck in neutral or in the midst of a transformation that has staff, board, and volunteers working in overdrive?

Join your colleagues for a fast-paced, full day of training at Mill Race Center, a long-awaited new senior center model, revitalizing a 56-year-old organization. 

Interact with three colleagues who together possess 88 years of senior center experience, not only laboring in the trenches but also leading and teaching their peers at state and national levels. 

Now, they’ve gathered to share their experiences—failures and successes—to help move your center in new directions.

  • Submit your own senior center case study.
  • Hear new ideas, discuss strategies, and begin to develop the components of an action plan that can SHIFT your center to success. 
  • Learn to develop more effective leadership for yourself, your board, staff, and volunteers
  • See how to work collaboratively to develop an inspiring vision, manage change, create measurable outcomes, and make marketing everyone’s priority.

While hard work and thoughtful deliberation are expected, you’ll enjoy opportunities to renew and make new friendships and have fun learning in a stimulating environment.

You can also take advantage of Columbus' small town ambiance, its thriving downtown, and its growing reputation as a premier architectural mecca.

SHIFT! your sights toward an educational experience that refreshes your professional soul and gives renewed energy to your efforts to make a positive difference in the lives of older adults.
