National Adult Day Services Association Seeks Presenters for 2013 National Conference

Posted November 26, 2012 in Events / Conference in Training

The National Adult Day Services Association, in partnership with the Kentucky Association of Adult Day Centers, seeks presenters for the 2013 National Adult Day Services Conference to be held in Louisville, KY, on October 10-12, 2013.  The conference theme, “Adult Day Services–Pushing Boundaries to Reach New Heights,” is intended to attract exciting and unique presentations that will inspire collaborative strategies, organizational cultural competency and creative programming.

Sessions are divided into 90 minute concurrent workshop sessions.  Sessions are intended to educate/support learning and therefore, presenters may not sell, promote or pitch any specific product or service.  If you do have a product that may be beneficial to Adult Day Service providers please list it on the application form and the committee will review the request.

To ensure being included in the review process, all proposals must be submitted by February 15, 2013.  Applications that fail to meet all guidelines or are incomplete cannot be considered for review.
