Welcome to the 

 

Continuing on our growth from past conferences and emphasizing the benefits of keeping seniors involved and engaged within their communities, we are thrilled to have you join us for this virtual conference to learn how we can take aging to the next level.

As older Texans continue to live longer, healthier lives, it takes the commitment of everyone in the aging community from providers to professionals to ensure the state’s seniors continue to live with dignity and participate fully in life. The 2021 AiTC will focus on ways professionals within the aging services community can incorporate best practices and innovative programming to reinforce Texas’ strength in collaboration by promoting connectivity and partnership to assist our state’s growing senior population.

It is truly through a compassionate, caring, and educated workforce and public that we can take on tomorrow’s aging today!
