Again, I am happy to report that our proposal for a pre-conference for the annual meeting of the Gerontological Society of America was accepted! Our day-long conference, Research that Matters to Employers: Overcoming Constraints to Later Life Employment, will be held on November 14, from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. As you know, GSA will be in Boston this year, so please make your plans now to arrive by November 13; hotels will fill up so please make your reservations as soon as you can.
Also, registration for the pre-conference is not included in registration for GSA, so please register for our session (and GSA) as soon as you can. It will be important to publicize the session among your colleagues and friends and encourage them to attend. We need to have a good audience.
One extra surprise is that Kerry Hannon, has agreed to be our keynote speaker. As many of you know, Kerry is a nationally recognized expert and strategist on career transitions, personal finance and retirement. I am sure having her join us will add to an already very exciting program!
