2013 NALI Call for Workshop Proposals

The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and co-sponsors of the National Aging and Law Conference invite you to submit proposal(s) to share your knowledge, expertise, and experience with private bar and public interest colleagues at the 2013 National Aging and Law Institute, which will be held on November 7-9 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, DC.

Workshop proposals are requested at all levels of expertise. The deadline for submission is March 29, 2013.

Do the elder law and aging rights communities have the advocacy skills to ensure our clients will age in a caring community? Making a caring community a reality for our clients is a formidable task at a time when health and long term care systems are out of reach for many, public benefits programs face budget cuts, and the population is aging rapidly. This Institute aims to provide attendees with the multidisciplinary skills and knowledge to ensure they can meet clients’ and communities’ needs holistically.

To this end, the programming will be divided into three tracks: Practice that Works; Policy on the Cutting Edge; Making Caring Communities a Reality for Clients.
