Master Plan for Aging National Symposium

Sponsored by West Health, The SCAN Foundation and The John A. Hartford Foundation

The Master Plan for Aging National Symposium builds on significant MPA momentum that is starting nationwide. Over half of all states are implementing or planning to implement comprehensive MPA activities. Whether you are in a state that is already working toward a Master Plan for Aging or just planting the seeds, this workshop is for you! You will learn from examples of how to get started and how to build momentum, hear strategies for building cross-agency collaboration and centering equity, learn how best to engage a wide field of stakeholders, get practical tips on tracking data and measuring success and walk away understanding lessons learned from other states. We encourage state staff, stakeholders, older adults, people with disabilities, family caregivers and funders to participate in the symposium.

Managing for Excellence, Impact, and Sustainability: How Healthy Organizations Gear Up for the Challenge of Building Healthy Communities

Sponsored by AARP

Healthy communities rely on healthy organizations.  When the institutions that serve older adults function at their highest levels, they can reach more people, provide higher quality programs and transform communities.  Join AARP Chief Operating Officer Scott Frisch, recipient of the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, for a special preconference exploration of best practices that enable organizations to support and sustain healthy communities. 

  • How do we measure success—what are the “symptoms” of a healthy organization?
  • How is AARP managing for excellence and impact and what have we learned?
  • What are some best practices for building healthy organizations in the social sector?
  • How can nonprofits build partnerships for sustainability and impact?
  • What is the role of scale?  Can small organizations use the same tools for excellence?

Integrating Older Adults Into Research and Tech at Georgia Tech

This off-site event is a private round-trip bus ride to the Georgia Tech campus, where you learn about how the university integrates older adults into its research and tech design, which will change the aging experience. First stop is the Center for Advanced Communications Policy where you will meet with Executive Director Dr. Brad Fain. Then you’ll visit the HomeLab with two researchers, Sarah Farmer and Brenna Phelps, before heading over to tour Georgia Tech’s Aware Home with Director Brian Jones. 

Georgia Tech’s HomeLab initiative brings together a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers with a community of older adults interested in participating in research to develop innovative technologies that promote health, wellness and independence for older adults living at home. Elders and researchers evaluate products designed for older adults at the Aware Home, a three-story, 5,040-square-foot facility that fosters research while providing an authentic home-like environment.
