Age+Action Conference

June 17, 2019 UTC - June 20, 2019 UTC


The application for workshop proposals is now available!

If you or your organization has an innovative concept or model to promote aging well, this is your chance to share it with other professionals and advocates working at the local, state, and national levels to improve the health and economic security of older adults. Submit your proposal by November 30, 2018.


Join NCOA for Age+Action, the premiere national conference focused on ensuring every person’s right to age with their best possible health and economic security. This conference will bring together the National Institute of Senior Centers, Center for Healthy Aging partners and all of the Benefit Enrollment Centers from across the country – first time ever! More than 800 professionals, advocates, lawmakers, and caregivers are expected to attend. The three-day event is an opportunity for individuals and organizations to develop more integrated partnerships, to learn from each other, and to work together in support of seniors as they face the changing realities of aging.

This year, the conference is taking a closer look at women and their aging experience by highlighting the challenges and opportunities they face as they age. Many women face a wider economic security gap as they age, impacting their overall well-being. But women also are the decision makers in their households. They are action-oriented, searching for solutions, engaging in activities, and seeking social interaction as they age.

Come share your best practices, and leave with new solutions that can have an even greater impact for all the older adults in your community!
