Wondering if you should attend?

Here's what some past attendees are saying about the CSA Conference.

“Professionals in all walks of life, different ages, and serving in an array of services, all working together to achieve a greater outcome for the aging. THAT was very inspirational!”

“An in person meeting not only gives us the chance to build networks and really reinforce what we know as CSAs, but to truly learn new things, understand new services, and be able to connect with others that have a plethora of information that we can all benefit from in order to turn around and help our clients.”

"I always enjoy the CSA conference, I walk away with new information and new connections I did not have prior to the conference.”

“To be able to sit down at a break or at lunch or at a session and be able to feel the energy of other people… you can’t get that through a video.”

“The biggest value that comes from CSA is being able to connect so many people that are important within the world of supporting seniors… this is a really great way to bring all of us together for collaboration for the success of the community that we all serve.”
