Get Involved

Get Involved in the Culture Change Movement

We want you – to get involved and help make culture change the norm in this country!  Each person can, and does, make a difference – and we need your engagement to achieve the vision of a culture of aging that is life-affirming, satisfying, humane and meaningful.  There are things you can do at all levels – in your community, in your state, and nationally.

Here are some ways we invite you to get involved:


Take advantage of opportunities to hear from leading experts and your peers about best practices in culture change and how you can apply them.  Attend the Pioneer Network Annual Conference and Hot Topics: Culture Change in Action webinars.


Read the blog articles in Pioneer Network’s newsletters and available on our blog, and then join the conversation by sharing your comments and insights.  Follow Pioneer Network on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter,  sharing our posts and adding your comments and take-aways from our educational offerings with your colleagues.  Incorporate Pioneer Network’s on-demand webinars into your organization’s education plan. Share your stories and expertise by contacting Joan Devine, Director of Education to discuss opportunities for sharing including webinars, podcasts and discussion groups.  And coming in January, requests for proposals will be open for the 2022 Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference being held July 24-27, 2022 in Denver, Colorado.   Watch the newsletter for details.

Reach out

Help educate elders and their families about what is possible in long-term care, what questions they should ask to identify providers that are committed to culture change and provide person-directed care, and how they can get involved.


Offer your time and talent while getting connected to other like-minded individuals from across the country by serving on a Pioneer Network committee.  Contact us to share your interests or read connect-with-the-network-brochure.
