Mid-Atlantic CCRC/Life Plan
Marketing and Communications Symposium

with LeadingAge Virginia and LeadingAge Maryland
September 19, 2018
Covenant Woods Retirement Community
Mechanicsville, VA

Three states - one place! Come network and learn with members from LeadingAge NC, VA, and MD! We have a great day planned with plenty of time to connect and share with peers, including a networking dinner the evening before the symposium.


  • The Digital Tools and Techniques Essential for Senior Living Marketing
    As digital marketing grows in importance for senior living communities, marketers are discovering that one approach does not fit all types of services at a CCRC/LPC.
  • Marketing Your Message with Public Relations
    Learn to use Facebook and engage key audiences by telling your community's most interesting stories. When done strategically, Facebook is a cost effective way to market your CCRC/LPC and to shape your community's public image.
  • Preparing for the Next Generation of Senior Living Consumers
    It’s very clear that senior living is experiencing a shift in consumer preferences, and research shows that Baby Boomers present very different characteristics from previous older adult generations.
  • Creative and Unique Marketing Applications
    A panel comprised of three member communities will discuss their education/community involvement and share best practices.
