In a year that so far has seen unprecedented challenges for all, and so many changes to life as we know it, the staff and Board of Directors at Pioneer Network have come to the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference, scheduled for August 9 – 12 in Pittsburgh, PA.

As much as we value the opportunity for Pioneers to gather and network each year, with the future remaining uncertain for Elders, senior communities and those that operate and support them, travel and gathering a large group together does not seem a wise decision at this time, and certainly not a priority for those living and working in community settings.

While the conference is being cancelled, Pioneer Network remains committed to finding a way to bring the network together and to that end, we are actively exploring options for creating a virtual event that can provide not only the education that is so much a part of our mission, but also opportunities for networking.

Information about plans to bring the Network together to Envision the Future:  2020 and Beyond will be shared in the coming weeks on the website, through newsletters and on Pioneer Network social media pages, so please stay tuned.

Applications are still being accepted for the
2020 Community Commitment Awards.
