LeadingAge Oklahoma Annual Conference
March 6-7, 2018

The 2018 Annual Conference is built around LeadingAge Oklahoma’s strategic initiative of developing innovative programs that will enrich the care and services of Oklahoma’s growing aging population. The primary areas of programming will include workforce development (specifically how to cultivate leadership and attract new talent to the field of aging), increasing and expanding the use of technology in all settings and stimulating innovation in the aging field to advance new models of service delivery.

Conference Audience

The annual conference attracts nearly 700 attendees, professionals in the field of older adult services from CEOs to front line staff. This audience is experienced and knowledgeable. Participants expect the most current and highest quality of information.

Level of Knowledge

A majority of the participants have been in the Long Term Care profession for a number of years. They have considerable knowledge and experience as professionals in senior care, and with few exceptions, are looking for a more advanced level of education. Please keep this in mind when designing your program.
