2021 Call for Presentations

2021 Virtual Annual Conference - May 17-19, 2021

LeadingAge Colorado is seeking presentation proposals for our 2021 Virtual Annual Conference and Exhibition, which will have the "Inspire What's Next" theme.

Most sessions will be "simu-live", meaning they are pre-recorded and broadcast the day of the event with the speakers available in the chat. A few hand-selected sessions will be live, the day of the event, for anything about policy or topics that can be outdated by the time a couple of weeks pass from recording until the event. 

We are looking for innovative, cutting-edge ideas and practices on all aspects of aging services. Presentations on innovative concepts and addressing challenging issues are specifically encouraged as are panel discussions. Suggested presentation topics include (but aren't limited to):
