Is your team of staff and residents engaged in a project that supports meaning and purpose for your residents AND is this project making a difference for those individuals in your town, city, state or beyond?

If the answer is YES, then consider completing an application for the Community Commitment Award and a chance to bring members of your team to the 2018 Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference in Denver where your project could be recognized at the Monday general session: Creating Community: It Takes a Team!
