Request for Proposals - 2019 Annual Conference
Share |

We want to hear from you! LeadingAge North Carolina invites you to share your expertise in the field of aging services by submitting a proposal to be a presenter at our largest event of the year, the Annual Conference and Trade Show May 6-9, 2019 in Myrtle Beach, SC. We seek proposals that demonstrate best practices, exemplify creativity, and inspire innovation in the field of aging.

In 2019 our theme is What If.

What if we were more passionate?
What if we embraced new ideas without any reservations?
What if we freely considered different perspectives?
What if we empowered our teams to take more strategic risks?
What If we could achieve more with new partners?
What If we had confidence to step outside the box, out of our lane and beyond our comfort zone?
What If we dreamed without limits?
What if we focused on our missions instead of our tasks?
What If we helped people find passion and purpose?
What If we made life better for older people, our staffs, our communities and North Carolina?

What If? Why Not?

The Annual Conference is a three-day gathering providing high quality educational sessions, product exhibits and networking opportunities. The event is an excellent opportunity for community and business members to share expertise and trends specific to aging services. We are seeking timely, thought-provoking education sessions that directly relate to CCRCs/LPCs. Based on 2018 conference evaluations, attendees would like to hear more about finance/accounting, technology, public policy and regulations, workforce issues-successful retention and recruitment programs, communicating with family members, diversity of staff, board and residents, and HIPAA compliance. We are seeking a variety of topics relevant to the field. Formats that include multi-disciplinary panels and member communities are encouraged.

The LeadingAge North Carolina Education Committee will select up to 20 proposals. The deadline to submit proposals was November 30, 2018. The Committee will review all proposals and notify applicants of the committee’s selections via email shortly after this date.


Sessions at the Annual Conference are intended to educate and support learning and, therefore, presenters may not sell, promote or pitch any specific products and/or services. In addition, LeadingAge North Carolina does not pay concurrent session presenters honoraria, reimburse expenses (e.g. travel, lodging or copying), or waive conference registration and/or trade show booth fees. Presenters will receive a complimentary registration for the day of their presentation and may attend other sessions on that same day. Additional days will require a separate registration form and payment. Electronic handouts for selected presentations must be received no later than two weeks prior to the conference in order for attendees to download materials prior to the conference.
