The rapid aging of Maine’s population and workforce has significant implications for Maine’s economic growth and is challenging employers, health and education systems, municipalities and state leaders to find innovative ways to attract and retain workers, create new housing and transportation opportunities for older adults, and deliver supports and services to keep people healthy and thriving in their homes and communities. 

Maine has the opportunity to be a national leader in developing strategies to solve these challenges.  This Summit on Aging will build on the vision and ideas generated by business, higher education, philanthropic and policy leaders at the Speaker’s Round Table Discussions on Aging held this fall.  Ideas generated at both events will be used to create a short-range plan to be implemented in the coming months and years.  We need your participation and bright ideas to help Maine lead in the creation of an Aging Friendly Maine made up of Aging Friendly Communities.

Open to the public.  Registration fee is $20.00; scholarships available.  Anyone who is interested in the future of Maine’s economy should attend, including leaders in business, finance, industry, public policy, higher education, health care, housing development, philanthropy, social services, public safety and local and state governance.

 

The agenda for the day will be available shortly.  However, if you know you want to attend, you can register at www.maine4a.org/summitregistration
