2019 Annual Conference & Exposition “Right Here – Right Now!
May 20-22, 2019 – Monterey, Calif.


LeadingAge California seeks the expertise of subject matter experts to develop and facilitate educational programming for its diverse membership. This diversity is represented in the content, attendee profile, learning format, audience level, and the overall objectives of the conference.

We encourage our members and other knowledgeable experts to submit ideas for education sessions by responding to this call for proposal. The participants are generally at an intermediate plus level with over half indicating an advanced level. Participants are looking for depth of content, challenging concepts and clear takeaways to take back to their community. They are also looking for opportunities to create solutions to their most vexing problems. Consequently, conference presenters need to understand their role to be facilitators of learning as well as subject matter experts.

As an advocate for its members and the senior living community, LeadingAge California welcomes proposals for sessions that address a wide variety of topics important to our membership. For example:

• Changes facing the senior care industry 

• Innovative approaches to accommodate all levels of care, single and multi-site organizations 

• Leadership and management strategies to support career advancement

• Executive-level changes processes that affect the entire organization 

• Marketplace dynamics affecting the senior care industry and how organizations can prepare for tomorrow

• New approaches to holistic wellness 

• Living well with Dementia 

• Changing workforce

The review process begins September 11, 2018, so extensions will not be granted. After a multiple-stage review process, proposal selections are made and notifications are sent as to whether a proposal has been accepted or declined. Also, due to a variety of factors with regard to proposals and the entirety of programmatic goals, LeadingAge California reserves the right to make recommended changes to titles, descriptions, session formats, lengths, and other elements, while considering the intent and goals of the proposal submission.
