The 2013 National Adult Day Services Conference on October 10-12, 2013, in Louisville, Kentucky, will feature new presenters, topics, networking opportunities and an internationally recognized venue for the opening reception.  The Kentucky Association of Adult Day Centers (KAAD) invites conference sponsors, exhibitors and attendees to enjoy refreshments at the Muhammad Ali Center for an international welcome in the interactive, state-of-the-art museum and educational center dedicated to his legacy and cultural impact in the heart of his home town. The two-story center has various exhibits that showcase the six core values of Ali’s life: respect, confidence, conviction, dedication, spirituality and giving.  Plan to arrive in time to attend this unique welcome event on Thursday evening, October 10!
