A few SIS folks met at 2017 PRAASA in Sacramento, California. I mention it in this post because there was a Senior Outreach Round-table Friday night March 3rd at 8:30 p.m. We had an opportunity to provide other attendees interested in learning more about SIS some of the background of SIS and CEC. There were representatives from various California entities, CEC groups, an SIS group, as well as a few Area Committee members from a variety of different committees who serve seniors in their Areas: Hospitals and Institutions (H&I) , Accessibility, Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC), Public Information (PI), and Special Needs. We even met a member from one of the Southern California Areas where a number of their committees have liaisons to CEC and share the responsibility for education, administration, outreach, and liaison with various senior facilities and organizations in their locale. We agreed to share information where possible.
As of this post (which I apologize began in February, and which needed to develop a bit), I am told that the 2017 Conference Committee is in action, emails are flowing, the program is developing, registrations are being filled, and the groundwork for this year’s conference is moving along.
So please look to this website as the current (2017) repository for information about CEC and SIS activities at the Area, Committee, District, and group level going forward. The 2017 SIS Conference companion site contains information about the September 14-17th event being held this year in Van Nuys, California. So please use the links and contacts posted on that site for registration, hotel, and other activities there.
In Love and Service,
