Summary: As the Baby Boom generation approaches retirement age, it is essential that we develop policies to ensure that this national resource remains a vital part of society. The 2005 White House Conference on Aging needs input as we develop an agenda for the 2005 Conference. How can we enable seniors to continue actively participating in and contributing to community and national well-being? Looking forward over the next decade and beyond, how can we, as individuals, businesses, private organizations and government in partnership, harness the vast potential that exists within an aging America?
We are particularly interested in the following key issue areas: planning along the lifespan, employment, our environment, health and long-term living, social engagement, and the marketplace. Speakers from the Leadership Council of Aging Organizations will be limited to five minutes maximum although there may be follow-up questions from members of the panel; there will be no questions taken from the audience. Accompanying written statements from speakers are encouraged and will be limited to a maximum of five pages. Selected speakers may be contacted by Conference staff and asked to elaborate on their presentations, or asked to or provide additional written materials.
Contact Person: Members to the Leadership Council are requested to register as soon as possible, but not later than one week before the session, by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating name, organization, very brief description of the organization's purpose, mailing address, e-mail address, telephone number, subject to be presented, and whether or not you will be providing a written statement with your presentation.
