The 2019 LeadingAge Iowa Spring Conference, What If, features more than 40 educational sessions designed to reach all types of long term supports and services professionals. 

This conference continues our unparalleled commitment to high quality education that serves the interests and needs of all aging service providers – long term care, assisted living, independent living, and home and community-based service programs.  It will provide opportunities to not only learn the latest compliance and regulatory issues but also to contemplate and consider What if?

As aging services providers, it’s easy for us to see the value of our work.  The lives we touch and the families and caregivers we support all have an impact well beyond the walls of our organizations.  What if is a powerful question that can drive us to live more fully, innovate, achieve more.  Our field is no longer about bricks and mortar or programs and services. It’s about considering the possibilities with older adults when asking What if? 

Join us for a great conference filled with fantastic speakers and celebrations, interactive and informative sessions and more meaningful connections than you can imagine...What if?
