In 2019, the place to be is
Louisville, Kentucky
and the time to be there is August 4-7, 2019. 

What better place to come together to advocate for and facilitate deep system change in the culture of aging than at the 2019 Pioneering a New Culture of Aging Conference in Louisville, Kentucky on August 4 – 7.

The theme this year is “Making it Happen” — and that’s just what we plan to do. We have lots of great guides lined up to explore with you what is happening today — and share ideas for making even better things happen in the future. YOU are Pioneer Network; we can’t do it without you!

Networking makes the Pioneer Network conference a go-to event for so many. We promise there will be lots of opportunities for networking — reconnecting with old friends and making new ones.

Watch for updates here on our website as well as in the weekly Pioneer Network newsletter and most importantly, mark your calendar for August 4 – 7.

See you in Louisville!
