Strategy Seminar Content:

This seminar is focused on leaders in the family service, health care, education, justice system, and the faith and business sectors. Compelling data on the growth of our population, with special emphasis on the options available for leveraging the assets of each age group for the betterment of all.

Florida’s age demography of 2016 will be the nation’s demography of 2040.  Every family and our entire community face balancing the needs of every generation every stage of life. The enormous changes in demography require attention, creative action, and effective advocacy so resources can be leveraged for the benefit of all.

Ours is a state of four full generations, and how we address the needs of children, parents, grandparents and super-elders is among the most critical economic and public policy challenges for the next decade. The needs for health care, education, family services, employment, public safety and environmental protection are best addressed through the lens of our four major age groups.

This interactive seminar will give participants the opportunity to share perspectives on the challenges facing our multi-generational families and help discover new opportunities for unifying community members at every stage of life. Special strategies of effective advocacy, influential communications and creative resource development will be shared.
