NJFA is taking our conference virtual.
Thursday, August 13 and Friday Aug. 14 - 9 am to 12 noon

We look forward to our conference every year as it is a time for us to come together with all of our friends in the field of aging. We greatly value the expertise you bring to our network, being the eyes and ears on the ground, working every day with NJ's older adult population.

We have made the decision to take our 2020 Conference virtual. A first time for us, but a necessary step due to COVID-19. We know that even signing into an online session takes you away from your work, but we hope you can find time to join us. We've adjusted the format to two half day sessions (9 am to 12 noon) in hopes that this allows people more flexibility with their schedule.
