Reminder – AIRS 2016 Conference Call for Proposals: Aging and Disability Track

Source: National Information & Referral Support Center

The Alliance of Information and Referral Systems (AIRS) has released the call for proposals for the 2016 Annual Information and Referral (I&R) Training and Education Conference. Next year’s conference is being held in St. Louis, Missouri, with pre-conference intensives on May 22 and the regular conference May 23-25. AIRS is seeking workshops addressing the breadth of I&R service delivery.

The Aging and Disability track provides a valuable opportunity to share developments and effective practices in serving older adults and persons with disabilities with I&R colleagues across the country. This track is coordinated by the National Association of States United for Aging and Disabilities (NASUAD) I&R Support Center, which strongly encourages aging and disability I&R agencies to review the call for proposals and consider a submission. See past topics.

Topics such as family caregiving, elder justice, mental health, aging with a disability, developments in home and community-based services, cross-sector partnerships and collaboration (including ADRC and 2-1-1 partnerships), No Wrong Door system building, ADRC funding and sustainability, use of technology in I&R, transportation, health coverage (Medicare and Medicaid coverage), and data collection and quality assurance are all topics of interest in aging and disability I&R.

The deadline for proposal submissions in February 10, 2016. Send submissions for the Aging and Disability track to Nanette Relave at Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about the Aging and Disability track.
