Call For Presentations


Call for Presentations is now closed! Thank you for your submissions. Notification letters will be sent out February 2018. 


The n4a Annual Conference & Tradeshow is the largest and most prestigious gathering of local aging leaders and professionals in the United States. More than 1,000 Aging Network professionals, as well as nationally renowned decision-makers and experts, participate in the Conference because they know that the issues and programs they care about most will be showcased. 


Why do attendees return year after year? Responses to post-Conference surveys overwhelmingly show that participants leave the event with exciting new information, tools, and contacts they can leverage as soon as they return to their agencies.  We hope that you will not only attend but also contribute your depth of knowledge and expertise by participating in a workshop or Fast-Track session.



If you wish to revise the speaker list that you submitted with your proposal, please provide the changes no later than March 10, 2018. To do so, use the form on the n4a website. You will need your proposal number to submit presenter changes.
