The Spring Symposium is the must attend event for staff who work in Adult Community Centers and Senior Recreation Centers.  This event will be a day filled with mini-presentations and topics from colleagues who are experts in their fields.  Presentations will include topics that pertain to people who work in adult/senior and community centers.  There will be opportunity to network with other professionals and come away with solutions and ideas unique to our work environment.

  • New ideas for your trip/excursion program; what works and planning inclusive trips for all
  • Cost recovery and how to apply it to a senior program
