Conference Presentations 2016
The 2016 Annual Conference was a great success, living up to its theme: Climbing Higher: Working Together to Reach New Heights in Aging Philanthropy.
With new participants and old friends in attendance, we learned from one another and enjoyed some excellent presentations.
This year GIA will not produce a full Conference Highlights document, but instead is making all major presentations and handouts available for download on this page.
