  • Applications Due: January 13, 2017

  • Handouts due: April 17, 2017

Our 2017 Annual Meeting is about the Power of Purpose. A clear sense of purpose enables you to focus on what matters most, taking risks regardless of the challenges or obstacles ahead. As aging services providers, it's not always easy for us to see the value of our work. But, the lives we touch and the families and caregivers we support—all have an impact well beyond the walls of our organizations. However, to find real purpose and meaning in what we do, it is important that we tap our own potential, find the courage and determination to live our mission with focus on the values, talent, skills and passion of those we serve to make a difference in the world.
Join LeadingAge Indiana, along with our partners, the Indiana Assisted Living Association (INALA), and Hoosier Owner’s and Providers for the Elderly (HOPE) and your peers for an exceptional education experience from May 8-9, 2017 at the Indiana Convention Center to explore how you and your organization can tap into your Power of Purpose. 
To be considered, please fill out the on-line Call for Presentations and submit to LeadingAge Indiana by January 13, 2017. Please note, preferential consideration will be given to submissions that include a facility/organization member. Further information may be obtained by contacting Emilie Perkins at eperkins@LeadingAgeIndiana.org.

The Spring Conference offers several formats for learning and networking. In addition to the traditional breakout session that lasts 60 – 90 minutes, the Spring Conference will also feature an educational offering at the Trade Show called the Idea Accelerator.
The Idea Accelerator is modeled in the spirit of Ignite & the TED conferences, allowing speakers the opportunity to showcase a 10 minute talk with no more than 20 PowerPoint slides to a small audience in the trade show. The Idea Accelerator is limited to 6 spots.
