About the Aging with Passion & Purpose Conference
The first biennial Aging with Passion & Purpose Conference was held in 2007. Each year's conference has a unique theme reflecting a trend in aging. The 2011 theme of "It Happens" reflected the reality that the first of the baby boomers were turning 65 and entering retirement. The 2013 theme of "Aging Well in the Age of Technology" brought participants together to learning about the growing field of gerontechnology and its impact on the quality and way of life of aging individuals. The 2015 theme of "Generations Working Together" helped participants better understand the unique characteristics of each generation and how they manifest in the workplace. The 2017 theme was the next generation services and introduced attendees to new ways of doing business in a new age.
The conference is organized and conducted by a team of planning partners representing a wide-range of organizations concerned about aging issues and is held on the UNO campus.
