Thank you, again, for your support and interest in the Virginia Governor’s Conference on Aging (VGCOA). The VGCOA team would like to share some exciting updates as we move forward.
The Virginia Governor’s Conference on Aging aims to bring together professionals to engage on critical issues facing older adults and their caregivers and the needs revealed as we continually adapt and anticipate what is next.
Due to COVID-19 and the uncertainty we are still facing, our Steering Committee, along with the Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services, and the Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging, have decided to pivot the 2021 Conference to a virtual format! We believe this is the safest and most responsible way to host our program. It is a multi-day conference to be held the week of May 24, 2021.
If you submitted a conference session proposal for consideration in 2020, your session proposal is still being considered for the 2021 Virtual Conference. If you would like to adjust your session proposal for any reason, please follow the instructions below. If you submitted a proposal in 2020 and would no longer like it to be considered for the 2021 conference, please contact email@example.com
We are seeking additional session proposals that address topics related to the challenges faced during the pandemic. Session proposals must be submitted by Sunday, February 28th at 11:59pm
