As the Baby Boom generation approaches retirement age, it is essential that we evaluate and develop any needed policies to ensure that this national resource remains a vital part of society. The 2005 White House Conference on Aging (WHCoA) is seeking input from a wide array of stakeholders as we develop an overarching agenda and plan for the 2005 WHCoA. For example, how can we enable both “rising” seniors and mature seniors to continue actively participating in and contributing to personal, 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, better harness the vast potential that exists within an aging America.
