"This is the best conference I have ever attended. The speakers and topics were inspiring, and delivered new information and ideas. Our company has takeaways that will improve the health of our residents and staff.... Days later I am still buzzing and brainstorming the new ideas with our team."

Peter Gaskill, President, Pacific Arbour Retirement Communities

Moving to the next level

Active aging embodies a simple truth: People are capable of leading a full life at any age.

Contrary to society’s negative myths and perceptions about later life, the capacity to engage in life fully continues throughout the life span, even as individual needs, interests and abilities may change. This truth drives both the International Council on Active Aging®, the professional association dedicated to Changing the Way We Age®, and the ICAA community.

It is the reason ICAA hosts a multilevel educational conference each year. And it is why professionals from across the active-aging spectrum gather there yearly to learn from and with each other. This one-of-a-kind forum offers a full choice of seminars targeting the different roles, goals and dimensions of active aging.

In 2014, the ICAA Conference takes aim at “Moving beyond the status quo” to help you and the industry reach a new level in active aging.

New opportunities, thinking

Since 2001, ICAA has worked with ICAA members and allies to promote active aging at every turn and support opportunities for older adults to live well. The overall impact of all these efforts is helping to redefine what it means to grow older.

In the active-aging industry today, moving beyond the status quo means building on what we already know in order to create new opportunities and ways of doing things. It means new ways of looking at older adults and their capabilities. It also means new thinking.

Examples include a focus on quality of life rather than longevity; the wellness model instead of the medical one; inclusion in society not exclusion; and opportunities rather than challenges. Another example is shifting from providing services to experiences. In these ways, we move toward the next level of active aging and create changes that ripple into society.

People are the key to success.

The ICAA Conference 2014 is your vital link to new ideas, best practices, case studies and research from industry leaders and experts who are passionate about healthy, vibrant living for older adults. Learn more about active aging and what’s involved in moving beyond the status quo. Join us in taking active aging to the next level.
