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 nrelave@nasuad.org. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions about the Aging and Disability track.
