We are thrilled to have both excellent speakers provide guidance and expertise with us this day.


The conference will also include a broad array of breakout sessions throughout the day to explore themes of innovation in the field of elder justice.


We moved the conference to a virtual format the last two years in consideration of pandemic safety and were pleased to welcome over 700 attendees. This year we are thrilled to return to gathering in person for this important event. We feel confident that we can gather safely and will continue to follow protocols for health and wellness for attendees in 2022.
