Engaging With Aging, Continuing A Long Tradition
In 2019, Nevada Senior Services was passed the mantle of a statewide aging services conference when the Aging Services Directors Organization (ASDO) decided to dissolve. ASDO was founded in 1982 by Myla Florence, then the Nevada Administrator of Aging Services. It was Myla’s goal to set up a network of City, County, State and private organizations that worked with the older adult communities in Nevada. The agencies and organizations were set up to meet and share their ideas and services in order to better serve seniors. The attending organizations distributed information about their programs for seniors and members shared contact and referral information to make these programs more accessible to their communities. In October each year, ASDO has sponsored a Caregiver’s Conference. CEU’s are offered and many speakers have shared beneficial information over the years.
Nevada Senior Services proudly continues this tradition under the current banner- Engaging With Aging: Nevada’s Forum on Aging. We are committed to the vision of a vibrant aging network enhanced by the “annual conference”. In 2019, the first Engaging With Aging Conference brought together over 325 aging professionals statewide.
Engaging With Aging will continues to present an opportunity for the aging network to engage in vibrant conversation and sharing about timely aging issues in Nevada.
We very much hope to that this will be an opportunity to bring the entire aging network together. We hope that you will join us and be an active participant sending representatives, participating in the dialogue, and also consider sponsorship opportunities.
