MEETINGS & CONFERENCES
Regular meetings are scheduled January through May, November and December. Meetings are held at a location within the state to allow for minimal travel from any county. The counties within the state are divided in to four quadrants. Quadrant meetings are encouraged during the months of June through October.
Other meetings of the membership may be called by the President or the Executive Committee as deemed necessary.
The Association holds two conferences per year in April and October. Quadrants rotate hosting the conferences. These conferences are usually held over a three-day period and are a time when members can gather to socialize, share information, become informed on issues from guest speakers, and meet several vendors that provide services and/or products to senior agencies and programs.
